Andy struggled to get his pant legs tucked into a pair of rubber boots. “Why do we have to go out and work in this weather?”
Hank adjusted the fit of his plastic rain-suit. “Somebody has to do it.”
“We’re gonna get wet. I know it.”
“And you’re okay with that?”
“C’mon, Hank.”
“It’s a fact, pardner.”
“Why? Why can’t we just wait?”
“Because this is what we signed up for. Whether you work in a light rain for a long time or in a heavy rain for a short time, you will get wet.”
