Under an umbrella

Rose leaves forming an umbrella shape

There was torrential rain with loud claps of thunder when I left for my eye test today.

It was still raining hard when I came out.

I rarely carry an umbrella because I have a tendency to leave them behind, and also they turn themselves inside out in the wind and act like drogues.

But when a man offered to shelter me with his umbrella, and went out of his way to take me right to the car, I was only too glad.

Chivalry is alive and well in Italy.
