I like umbrellas, in theory. But when you've got your handbag, and are carrying anything else at all, it's too much to handle an umbrella.
Still, the other day I happened to have my hands free in the rain. I left the black one in the closet.
I have an umbrella with William Shakespeare's image on it. It's big, with a nice wooden handle. A silly purchase, I suppose - I got it a long time ago.
But it has his autograph - how could I resist it?
