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?
