Poor Surfer Soup

Today was a pretty gloomy day by Southern California standards. So gloomy in fact, that my orthodontist told me “she had to turn her windshield wipers on the automatic setting (not just flicking them on yourself every time you get a few drops on your windshield).” She described it as “raining cats and dogs,” which I found hilarious.
