It’s raining. I don’t have an umbrella. “Here, borrow mine,” she remarked “I’ve had this for 15 years! “Its a Totes with a wooden handle, so it’s heavy, but small enough to keep in your purse.” Why did she have to say that? I felt immediately burdened. Who keeps an umbrella for 15 years? What if I misplaced it or lost it?
Ive never kept an umbrella long enough to remember how long I had it. Umbrellas seem to just appear in closets whenever I needed one . No one told me I had to save them. But she could even tell me about how she lost her original wooden handled Totes at Mc Donald’s 15 years ago! Now, I feel guilty because I was probably the guy who found it, used it, and then threw it away.
