“The Devil Is Beating His Wife”

“Wow!  It’s raining outside, and it’s still sunny!”

“Why, yes it is, would you look at that.”

“Momma says it’s what happens when the devil is beating his wife.”

“Excuse me?”

“Yeah, but I’m not sure what she means by it.  I asked her about it once, and she started to tell me something about the fires of hell, but then Grandma stuck her head in and said something about ‘tying up’ and Momma turned really pink and then I got to go out and play.”

“I see.”

“I don’t really get what she meant by it, but every time I ask about it, she says yes to whatever I asked her before, so I guess it must be something bad.  Or good.  I don’t know.  Maybe it’s bad because the devil would think it’s a good thing?”

“Who knows, who knows.”
