We decided to go to Epcot last night to see the Candlelight Processional and hear the reading of the Christmas Story by Edward James Olmos. The husband is a huge fan of Battlestar Galactica & has been waiting a month for this particular night. We packed up the kids and headed over.
The problem? It started to rain while we were halfway to the auditorium. Oh – and when I say ‘auditorium’ – I mean ‘outdoor ampitheater’…and when I say ‘rain’ – I mean ‘freakin’ pour buckets.’ Let’s just say that Jen was not a happy camper sitting on a wet bench getting rained on under a tree while waiting for the processional carrying candles and umbrellas to make its way to the stage.
And we’re much too cool to wear those plastic rain ponchos.
We sat there for about 10 minutes, getting wait, and trying to decide whether we should stay or go. We left – thank goodness – and made our way back to the front of the park (we were at the complete opposite end) to head to the car. (after a bathroom and hot chocolate break)
While walking back and ducking under cover each time a little squall of heavy rain came through, we came upon this:
Um yeah… YA THINK? The whole freakin’ place needed a wet floor sign!
Which Disney freakin’ Einstein decided to set this ONE sign out… UNDER AN UMBRELLA, NO LESS!
By the time we made it to the car, the four of us were soaked to the bone. (our underwear was soaked… that’s how wet we were)
Good times, good times.
We peeled off clothes in the car and went home.
I don’t think I can watch Battlestar Gallactica again. Oh wait… I don’t watch it now.
