Several years ago, a former classmate and friend of mine said this to me one day when we were walking home in the rain:
The umbrella is simply a metaphor for hopelessness. See, no matter how hard you try to keep yourself dry with one of them, you simply get wet. It’s hopeless, always a losing situation.
Now every time it rains, it reminds me of that statement, and I always think it’s true. Yes, the infamous monsoon season has started. I personally thought it started kind of early, and I mentioned it to my co-worker, and he said:
Haven’t you heard of global warming? Also, there’s El Nino.
Hahahaha. Silly me. Of course, global warming messes everything up. XD Well, maybe not, but I can see some truth in it. X_X;; Anyway, I walked home in the rain. It was quite fun. I think I might as well have gone swimming. BAH. Actually, the weather’s been really unpredictable the last couple of days. Rain, sunny, rain, sunny . . . make up your mind! Quit being such a bipolar bint! Then again, yelling at the weather is like yelling at a bunch of preschoolers. In other words, why bother?
