We can always depend on the umbrella. Through the cold and heat, it remains sacrificially steadfast. That is until the wind zooms in and turns it inside out. Then we’re forced to spend the next couple of embarrassing minutes trying to pop it back in place. Once we do, all eyes on us, we hobble away wet and messy as if nothing ever happened. Very dependable indeed.
I on the other hand am not. Somehow I always tend to lose mine on the bus. Also, no matter how big they make them, you can never fit the other person well enough without getting your shoulder wet.
Happy Umbrella Day
Today we get to go singing in the rain, or better yet, you can stand under my umbrella, ella, ella, eh, eh, eh.
