in search of a brown umbrella

All these standard umbrellas of black,

so boring it makes me wanna yak.

Occasionally there’s red or gray

still, those don’t make my day.

Those colors get the thumbs down.

But seriously, i want an umbrella of BROWN.

Nice poem … where are you looking? I found a steel-blue umbrella that matches my mobile phone and my PDA! What a nerd! I love it though! 🙂 I’ll bet if you keep your eyes open, you can find a brown umbrella. How much are you willing to spend?

i was at IKEA the other day. They sell umbrellas for $3. The IKEA umbrella has alternating colors of blue and yellow. It stands out alot. For three bucks you could buy like 10 umbrellas. You could walk with four umbrellas open at the same time to get ultimate coverage from the rain.

go to a department store [like m.field’s or bloomingdale’s”> for interesting color choices. you’ll pay a little more, but you’ll get a longer-lasting and higher-quality ‘brella. and it won’t turn inside out in the wind! just don’t poke anyone’s eyes out.

I have one of those specially designed brellies that is wind-resistant. It hasn’t failed me yet and I have used it on Chicago’s windiest corner: Adams & Wabash

I was blown ACROSS the street at Wacker & Jackson last year [and injured”>, so I contend that intersection is the windiest, by the Sears Tower, but Mr. Skilling himself said that historically the corner of Adams & Wabash is the windiest. I seent it on T.V. so it must be true
