Sunday evening, my DH and I went to our favorite Thai restaurant. The owners are a couple, and daughter who helps out, and they are not super good with English. DH understands the woman better than I do. Anyway, we found the place last fall and go almost every week and they like us, she brings us free desserts to try!
So that evening, it was still light out and rainy, not rainy, one of those days, and then we saw it - a half circle of rainbow. Just gorgeous. When the woman came over, I pointed to it and she said softly, "beautiful," then squoze her eyes tight for a second, then told us, when you see a rainbow, you close your eyes tight and "pray" - then she kind of elaborated, like "win the lottery" - basically "make a wish."
And after she went away, I said to DH, so praying is the same as making a wish!
Oh and squoze is my favorite made-up word for past-tense of squeeze.
