U is for Unicorns, Underwear and Umbrellas.
I have a habit of buying the cheapest, shortest-lasting umbrellas ever made. When standing in front of a selection of them in a store, I always pick the $5 one. Never fails.
It lasts maybe two rain storms, and breaks.
Then I'm back at the store, buying another two-use umbrella.
But then, last summer, I splurged on a $12.99 umbrella! I'm happy to say that I still have it and it's still going strong.
Please let this be a lesson - learn from my mistakes: spend a few extra dollars and purchase a worth-while umbrella. You won't regret it.
