U Is For Umbrella: Do You Carry Or Use An Umbrella?

I always remember what my dad used to tell my mom: to always carry an umbrella wherever she go. Umbrella is not only handy to use rain or shine since the weather is really so very unpredictable. But on top of being capable of being use in any kind of weather rain or shine, umbrella could also be use as weapons against some bad guys. Do you use or carry an umbrella?

If it's rainy I carry an umbrella. I hadn't thought about carrying one to fight off the bad guys.

Yes, I always have a folded umbrella in my bag whenever I go out of the house. That's because the weather here is so sunny, and I don't want the heat of the sun on my skin. Besides, if it rains I am ready too. And that folded umbrella was my supposed weapon when some weeks ago, I had a scary incident in a pedicab, one evening. I even posted about it.

@mandala100 Better than using too much sun screen and that way the sun gets to you better and helps you more but in small doses of course.

Sometimes..I only use it if there is no hard wind on rainy days because I still got wet..On summer days, I chose to use some sun protection lotion than bringing umbrella

I love the pic, Peter! I have two umbrellas but rarely bother with them. Although the rain can be harsh during a monsoon, I figure that eventually I will dry off.
