There's been quite a bit of rain in the past few weeks, and I am horrible about looking at the forecast before walking out the door most mornings. Last week I got caught at work in down pouring rain, sans umbrella or raincoat. Even though the subway is a block from the office, getting caught in the rain and looking like I've showered with my clothes on is not exactly my favorite look . My boss saved the day and lent me his back up umbrella (smartly kept in a drawer of his desk), but not without some sage/ fatherly advice about going out and buying my own desk umbrella.
I'll admit, he's right not having an umbrella at the office is just silly, particularly when I walk about a mile to and from work most days. I am sure though, he didn't have these animal print umbrellas from Old Navy in mind when he lobbied for this purchase. I bought both the cheetah and zebra both of which will have me singing in the rain.
