Last Monday as the work day wrapped up I looked outside and sighed. Rain. Ain't that a bitch. I have class on Mondays, and the walk from where I park to the building is maybe a quarter of a mile. Not far on a beautiful fall day, but in the rain...
As I pulled into my parking lot and I started digging for an umbrella but came up empty handed. Then I noticed a handle in the back seat. A handle that looked like this...
Oh lord. I sent Nick a text message (that I also tweeted, because I enjoy making fun of myself on the internet) that said: " I have to walk to class in the rain and the only umbrella in the car is a
Buzz Lightyear one. All the other students will be jealous right?"
Nick wrote back: "You can put a bag over your head and walk to class or use the umbrella and put a bag over your head when you get to class. It doesn't help that the bag is from Save a Lot."
That husband of mine. He does make me laugh. I opted to go with the umbrella. You all, this thing was tiny. TINY! It BARELY covered my head. And I had to hold the handle all the way up near my face because it was so short. Sorta like it was made for a two year old or something.
I actually saw several drivers take a closer look as I walked by, and then saw them laugh. Nobody in class mentoned my rockin umbrella, but several of them saw me come in with it.
Nothing bands you as a mom faster than a Buzz Lightyear umbrella on a college campus.
It's Monday again, and it's raining again. And I didn't get around to buying a grown up umbrella. Looks like I will have to break out Buzz one more time. No doubt about it. I am the coolest kid in school.
