Umbrella… Ella… Ella… A… A…
It is raining. Not just a little bit, it is pouring with rain. It is raining incontinent cats and slobbering dogs. You have your trusted umbrella to protect you, and you speed your way home. Then you pass under a bridge, or a large overhang. What do you do?
- Hold your umbrella up, although it is not necessary because it is dry under the bridge/overhang and it makes you look like a moron?
- Fold your umbrella to show that you’re aware that it is dry, but that also means you have to open it a minute or so later when you get from underneath the bridge/overhang?
- Leave your umbrella open, but lower it to the side to show that you know that it is not raining under the bridge/overhang, without having to go through the hassle of opening again once you’ve passed underneath?
What do you do? That’s the dilemma!
