You knew it had to happen.... a change had to come!
That's right! You knew this day would come, you knew a change was in the air, yesterday was a momentous day of change...
... it rained on New Jersey's commute!
Our very adorable new coworker from back east hasn't really paid any attention to us crazypants people talking about traffic. Until he came in after a morning on the wet freeways and declared:
"Oh my God this city is &*%$#%."
"What happened?" I asked.
"It just started to sprinkle, I mean it wasn't even real rain! And all the cars just stopped! Or started running into each other!" he said.
"Oh yeah," I said. "Um, that kind of happens here."
"What is the problem with this place?" he asked.
"Well, New Jersey, there is actually a mathematical explanation for this entire phenomenon. Let me break it down for you:
Water spotting on your phat ride + the extra hair products you have to apply multiplied by the extra time it takes you to get to Starbucks + soymilk + latte ÷ the sum total of people who are on the Master Cleanse - pilates. There's a new math version that also factors in the square root of how many celebrity sightings you had last weekend at The Grove but I'm not into all that 'new' math stuff."
"You are insane and so is this city," he said.
"Yes, we belong together. It is my longest running monogamous relationship to date," I said. "I flirted shamelessly with Paris, but my cats don't speak French so I had to come home."

So there you have it, it rained, and New Jersey got to see his newly adopted city at its finest. You knew a change had to come eventually!
