I posted on FaceBook this morning, “We just walked Prince in the pouring rain. We’re either very dedicated to our dog or dedicated to being stupid.” Friend, Gary Forsythe, responded, “Was it purple rain?”

Well, I had to give that some thought. Of course it wasn’t purple rain; there’s no such thing. But then I remembered there was a rock star who once sang about purple rain. Why was Gary bringing that up just because we walked our dog in the rain?

Twenty minutes later, I happened to remember that it was Prince who sang Purple Rain. I still didn’t see what this had to do with my dog walk.

Another twenty minutes passed and it finally dawned on me that Gary brought up purple rain because my dog’s name is Prince.

Yep, I’m a little slow on the up-take, but I do eventually get it.
