U is for Umbrella


The picture above is not the actual umbrella but it works as an illustration!

A couple years ago I was staying with my daughter to help out after she had hand surgery. One of my responsibilities was to take my granddaughter to and from school. They live in a very rainy climate--especially in the spring! 

So, I arrived at the school early to pick my granddaughter up from school. It was raining, of course, so I grabbed my granddaughter's umbrella from the backseat thinking she would be thrilled I thought of it! I opened it up and put it over my head, not looking at the umbrella. As I was waiting, some older children walked by, looked at me and giggled! Then a teacher walked by, looked at me, smiled and said, "Cute!" pointing to my umbrella. I just smiled.

Well, my granddaughter finally came out so I handed her the umbrella and saw what everyone was amused about...the umbrella had ears! You can be sure I check to see what the umbrella looks like now before standing out in public!

We don't get much rain where I live and it's a good thing because the only umbrella I have is a pink one with Victoria's Secret printed on it! I think I would rather use an umbrella with ears:D

  2. My granddaughters live in Texas. It rarely rains there, yet they have a collection of umbrellas. If it even looks cloudy, they want to take an umbrella. They are always hopeful that it will rain so they can use an umbrella.
