A couple of weeks ago, I was caught in two really heavy downpours of rain. The first time I was sodden. When I got home I had to strip off all my clothes and dry myself. I put on fresh and dry clothes. I felt so much better.
The day improved, it became drier and sunnier and I decided to go out again, this time to buy groceries. I was leaving the grocery store when unexpectedly the heavens turned on the torrential taps. I used the carrier bag trick I had resorted to before. You roll the opening back until it looks like it will sit on your head like a rain hat, admittedly, a bit of a large and unusual one. A few people grinned, others looked and a lot of people stared, fixed stares. I smiled. At least I had a jacket on and with my improvised head cover, my hair stayed dry.
Hubby roared with laughter when he saw me coming from the car with the shopping wearing my ‘designer’ plastic bag head gear, which just happened to be a capacious Lidl’s plastic carrier bag advertising me in large lettering as…… “ONE OF LIDL’S SURPRISES” ❗
