#AtoZChallenge One-liner: U is for Umbrella

Umbrella

(noun)

An object that has the potential to protect you from rain (and sun!), but ironically the day you forget to carry it ends up being the rainiest of days!

Did you know that the basic umbrella was invented nearly 4000 years ago and that initially it was only used by nobility and royalty?

Initially, umbrellas were treated as a female accessory. But even now, many of the men I know (including but not limited to my brother) turn their noses up at the thought of having to carry an umbrella!

And you have the option of either waiting it out or getting drenched from head to toe.

Whenever I forget my umbrella, it rains. Often, very heavily. Has this ever happened to you?

What are your thoughts? Do let me know. The comments section is all yours for the taking.

This is day #31 of the lockdown here in India. Hope you and your family are safe and well. Stay safe. Take care.

  1. Oh don’t even ask, whenever I forget to carry an umbrella it always rains and by rains, I mean heavy rains. I didn’t know that umbrellas were invented 4000 years back.

  2. Exactly…so now I carry one umbrella in my bag and another in the car yet it isn’t a foolproof mechanism. Nature has a way of getting at people more cautious about not getting drenched.

  3. Umbrella saves us from rain, but still I really hate to carry umbrella. It feels like a burden.
    In childhood, while going to school, my mom used to give me umbrella for saving me from scorching heat. But I used to keep it in my bag only. 😅
