    And we all appreciate that. Not that there isn’t a literal multitude of other mental / emotional defects on public display to examine in wry amusement.

    It’s a stone age thing. Meet the Flintstones. And don’t worry because I personally love the big top circus amusement. When the train lands in the city, you are catapulted to The Twilight Zone. A high worth the price of an admission ticket. Added to the usual high of a toke or two.

    So sashaying without a parasol is manly. All right!

    Think of it as being classy instead of being a wuss!

    I’ll bet he’s also got a 45 minute Youtube video trashing the new Barbie movie.

    Here-abouts, rain is a rare & wondrous occurrence. Revel in it.

    You may want the parasol for the sun, though.

    Remember, it’s all in the mind (or the hips) of the sashayer.

    Parachuting with a parasol might require paramedics and lots of paracetamol and percodans.

    It is well known that umbrellas attract lightning and deplete male hormones.

    A parasol is for the sun, when it rains you need a paraguas.

    K, hang on a second, I’m writing this down…

    Real men don’t:

    1. Carry umbrellas

    2. Use a straw

    3. Order a drink that comes with an umbrella (stupid umbrellas)

    4. Wear pink

    5. Wear a pinkie ring

    6. Whine (oops, you lose!)

    7. Shave any part of their body, except the head

    8. Sing along to Justin Bieber

    9. Carry purses

    10. Ask for directions

    11. Get facials/mani/pedicures

    12. Sit cross legged

    13. Have soft hands

    14. Watch chick flicks

    15. Eat quiche

    16. Pay for “it”

    17. Wear speedos

    18. Wear socks anywhere except your feet

    19. Are not scrawny little wimps

    20. Never drive in a cute convertible with another man

    Man, it’s tough to be a man, not that I’m whining about it or anything…

    Will a parasol protect one from rain?

    Maybe wear a Stetson, if you think it’s manly enough. At least your head will stay dry.

    As someone who used to walk from residence to work regularly, in an area with frequent stormy weather, I customarily carried an umbrella, useful against the sometimes heavy rain and also usable as a defensive weapon (served me well on at least one occasion with the almost-impaling of a would-be aggressor). When, at a later date, I had a car, I’d keep a spare in it, too.

    But do not call my anti-pluvial umbrella a parasol, that dainty anti-sunshine prop of Southern Belles!

    Harumph! Grumble, grumble!
