Wearing new clothes doesn’t have to be incompatible with a stroll in the rain. There is no way she will soil her new clothes, her shiny new shoes or white socks. So the girl thinks of all sorts of strategies to avoid the puddles, which in her mind are traps blocking her way.

But despite all her efforts she cannot avoid falling into one of the puddles. What a disaster! Will she be punished at home? But the damage is done and cannot be fixed, so maybe it’s better to make the most of it and enjoy the moment!
