Somewhere THROUGH the rainbow

I've been driving back and forth from Dracut to Worcester a lot because I'm bunny-sitting Velveteen while my mom is out of town.

Yesterday on the way back to Dracut it rained so hard that there was standing water on the highway--the drains couldn't keep up with what was coming down. As I drove the sun gradually peeked out, even though it was still raining.

As I came around a bend, I saw an amazing rainbow. I snapped a few shots of it, camera in one hand and steering wheel in the other. I thought I would pass under it as I drove, so I put the camera down when I managed to get a non-blurry shot. To my surprise, the rainbow got lower as I got closer. And then, for a fraction of a second, I was in the rainbow. IN. THE. RAINBOW.

It was breathtaking. There were bands of color shooting through the car, making everything look as if I were wearing glasses with multicolored lenses. When I die, I don't want to go to heaven. I want to go in the rainbow again.

I imagine it as a world where you get free Skittles... and they are vegan. Surely there are no rendered animal bones necessary in happy rainbow land. Damn gelatin ruining my ex-favorite candy. I have yet to find a vegan Skittles-esque treat. If anyone knows of one, let me know. Otherwise I might have to die and go to rainbow land a little early.

That's pretty much the coolest thing I've ever heard. I didn't know that was possible!
