A good training rain manual

Umbrellas are part of Japan’s national identity; just as the meteorologists here are gods. For example, if you wake up and it’s a nice day, but when you go outside you see everyone is carrying an umbrella — go back and get the biggest one you have. Even when the sun is blazing and the only precipitation visible is the perspiration of your palms. Otherwise you will be sorry.

Oh and never EVER put your laundry out on a sunny day without checking the forecast first, because that just guarantees you rain. And if you see me putting my laundry out, always bring yours in, because I never check the forecast.

And the ad? Oh right. Yes, “Happy Manners” for the underground (metro). It says something like “Please put your umbrellas away carefully.” The metro has a whole series of “Happy Manners” ads to encourage people not to annoy others while traveling. Aren’t they just so couth.

BTW, if you are into umbrella worship, please click “brolly” under “other stuff”
