The Umbrella, It’s good for nothing yet good for something’s, Like a hot sunny day with mild wind to provide shade from the UV rays. However on a windy rainy day like today its worth shit as the wind beats it mercilessly on the umbrella flipping it, skinning it upward, breaking the spokes as the owner holds tightly in a war of futility attempting pathetically to keep from flight and destruction while simultaneously trying to stay dry. Until alas the winds and rains claims victory as the umbrella lies haplessly in on the ground and the owner runs off in soaked in frustrated defeat and pissed at just having spent $20 for an umbrella that lasted less than 60 minutes.
Although from a completely selfish standpoint I enjoy the antics and animation of umbrella wrestling. It is quite amusing for that reason I now walk with my dinky Samsung WB600 digital camera with video making capabilities poise for the opportunity to click and tape someone in the trios of “wrestleumbrella”. Does that sound bad, oh well what can I say to that, I am sorry? Ahhhh…Not. It simply makes for interesting people watching.
I guess you figured by now that I don’t do umbrella eh. One is better off investing in a decent rain coat, hat and galoshes. Might take a little more time to get them on sure but they are guaranteed to get the job done, keep you dry and your disposition on the sunny side on an otherwise soggy day.
