A few months back, I picked up a new umbrella. Actually, Josh picked it out for me. He thought the bright colors might make working in the rain a little better for me.
Today, I tried it out.
As I walked from my car to my first patient's home, I was completely dry under my giant, colorful umbrella. Until, all of a sudden, Snap! My umbrella completely closed on it's own and I was soaked in a matter of seconds.
At my second house of the day, I held the umbrella a little more carefully and closely. Just as I stepped onto the porch....Snap! The umbrella not only closed unexpectedly, the black rods on the inside got completely stuck in my ponytail. Completely. Stuck.
I have no doubt that seeing the nurse, who is coming to check on you and take your blood, twirling in a circle trying to get an umbrella out of her hair must be very comforting.
I caught a view of myself in their mirror as I entered the house. I was a cross between Alice Cooper and Don King. Raccoon eyes and crazy hair.
So, how was your day?
