Aren't umbrellas so difficult, especially when you've got a drink bottle, bus card and cellphone to hold on to all at the same time! These past few days have been really rainy and so I've had to bring the brolly to uni, and it is so much more than holding it above your head! You've got to determine which direction the wind is blowing from and ensure your umbrella is facing towards the wind so it doesn't blow inside out.
The Umbrella-Blowing-Inside-Out Count So Far (since Wednesday): 12
(No I have nothing better to think about as I struggle through the rain than to count the number of times it happens to me!)
