Did you play out when it was raining? Maybe you were already out and you just carried on despite the showers?
Back then we had anoraks, which pretty much deflected rain if I remember rightly. Splashing other kids with puddle water was fun but my Mum went mad when I got home!
Everyone used to say that getting wet in the rain would give you a chill. It sort of made rain unhealthy but I liked the feel of it bouncing off my hood and coat anyway.
How about you readers?
