Why do we say that to describe the perfect weather day? People always feel the need to throw that in. “Not a cloud in the sky.”
You know what? That’s not a perfect weather day. I want some clouds. Give me some lazy cumulus clouds. Who just wants a boring, plain, blue sky when you can have a blue sky with some nice, puffy clouds? Next time I describe perfect weather conditions, I’m going to finish with, “A few clouds in the sky. Nice, big puffy clouds, too. Cumulus maximus, dude. You could really see a lot in those clouds. Curious shapes. Clouds are God’s Rorschach test.”
You know who probably started this whole “not a cloud in the sky” thing? Sunbathers. That’s who. The only time you’re really bothered by some nice clouds is when you’re trying to get a tan.
Well, forget that. I’m not going to let the whims of sunbathers dictate my perception of what perfect weather should be. Cloud me.
