So, the current weather forecast is ...
Mostly cloudy with a chance of showers and thunderstorms. Highs in the mid 70s. Northwest winds 5 to 10 mph. Chance of rain 50 percent.
and now we have a new dictate -- men are to have black umbrellas; women are to have flowered ones.
No, these aren't being supplied, made available for rental, whatever.
Conveniently for me, I have a jumbo black, along with the various rainbow ones, but ... she just baffles me.
It's times like this I wish I were a proper evil person, and thus could really get away with BREAKING ALL THE RULES... Safety orange pants, fluorescent lime green shirt, rainbow umbrella, hot pink shoes, paisley top hat... oh the humanity!
