To use an umbrella, or not to use an umbrella? This age-old question has puzzled the wisest humans for centuries. But worry no more! The following rhyme will help you remember just when it is acceptable to raise your brolly skyward.
A brolly is not just for city or town
No – it can be used going up hill or down.
Whenever it threatens to rain on your head
That’s when you should cause its taut canvas to spread.
But if you should find yourself under a roof
And you need to use something that is waterproof,
Do NOT use your brolly in this circumstance –
Or with rotten luck you’ll be taking a chance.
