Kember and I were traveling through Arizona yesterday, that’s there this lovely story takes place. We swapped places after getting gas so I was driving, I usually need something to look at or to do while I drive, especially when everything around you is just desert... not to be confused with dessert, that would be fun to dive though.So here I was sitting driving at a constant speed of 55 on a 75 mph highway, Kember slowly falling asleep next to me, I needed something to look at. I look up to the perfectly blue sky with the sun way to hot for my liking and see one beautiful little cloud. My opinion changed miles down the road but at first glance I was happy to have a friend to look at.
I told Kember before she fell asleep what a great day it was to cloud watch because there was not a cloud in the sky but this one.
For 40 plus miles I sat driving watching this cloud change image every few miles I traveled closer to it. I saw a roster, a slinky dog like in toy story, a couple mermaids here and there, I even saw Prince Charming riding on a horse chasing after Cinderella... okay that last part was a bit of an exaggeration, okay a lot exaggerated. That would have been cool if I saw that though. I mainly just saw a cloud and forced my imagination to see something other than gasses floating in our atmosphere. The closer we got to this cloud I could see beyond the mountain behind it and what saddens me about this is, I spent several miles full of joy by this one thing to keep me occupied. Yet it was a man made cloud!!! The horror. So then I parted my way with one last glance and saw a lion floating above me.
I spent the next 10 miles a little sad, not knowing what to do with myself. To my surprise though I look in my right mirror and there I see a unicorn up in the air!!
Truly what a great day to cloud watch. I am sure you all have those memories of lying in the summer sun looking up at the clouds passing by and making absurd assumptions of what they look like. I haven’t done that in a long time but yesterday was a great day for cloud watching that one cloud.
Here is a picture of this wonderful cloud up in the blue sky. Let me know what you think it looks like... Please do not pay attention to the several bugs splattered on our windshield, just look at the cloud.
I would like to donate 1 dollar for every time I said cloud in this so if someone wants to count how many times I said the wonderful word cloud. Id gladly donate to any organization.
Cloud, cloud, cloud, cloud, cloud, cloud, cloud, cloud, cloud, cloud, cloud, cloud, cloud, cloud, cloud, cloud, cloud, cloud, cloud, cloud, cloud, cloud, cloud, cloud, cloud, cloud, cloud, cloud.
For extra effect or affect... Not sure about that one. Also I probably didn’t say cloud as many times as I thought I did:)
