Mountaineering Melodies No. 21: Why does it always rain on me?

Why does it always rain on me?
Was it because I lied when I was seventeen?
Why does it always rain on me?
Even when the sun is shining, I can't avoid the lightning.

Travis - Why does it always rain on me?

It is unlikely that the reason for my regular drenching is teenage inveracity. I can't remember that far back but am not convinced I was less truthful at that age than at any other. Getting wet doesn't do you much harm, but attracting lightning is not a long-term career move. My usual enjoyment of storms as an observer has been moderated after watching the lightning conductor on an adjoining office block being struck - quite awesome. And apparently the pink fireball I saw from the sunbright carse of the Forth amid the usual cartoon zigzags over a doom-black Stirling can do even more damage.

Why does it always rain on me? Because I live in Scotland.
