There Will be a Next Time

When my boys (hubs included) heard from the news the other day that there will be a meteor shower, they immediately got their Binoculars and Spotting scopes ready.  According to the news, the shower will last for more than an hour so they went to the terrace on the fourth floor and positioned their stuff.  They even brought snacks and refreshments, just in case it lasts longer and they get hungry.

The boys were very excited because it's their first time to use the Spotting scopes.  They already had their binoculars but for nature lovers, those were not enough.  When they chanced upon a sale on one of the online stores they frequent, they didn't stop pestering me until I said yes.

Anyway, going back to my story.  They settled themselves in the terrace and waited for the meteor shower.  They were enjoying the full moon and the stars when thick clouds started to appear.  They covered the moon and the stars and then not much longer... rain poured.  They waited a little more thinking that the night sky would clear again, but it didn't.  My boys went down disappointed.  All I was able to say was, "Don't worry boys, there's always going to be a next time."
