So on random days between now and my 1000th day, I thought I would share these "lessons"; both for your entertainment and for your "education" and to remind me how much I really have learned!!! You are never too old.........
Day #858 of Living in Denmark
This cute little umbrella that I bought at the GAP for $10 is just that.... a CUTE little umbrella. It fits nicely in my purse or backpack and is so cheery and happy with its colors!
HOWEVER, cute little $10 umbrellas from the GAP are not made for the rainy days in Denmark! This poor little guy has been turned inside out more times than I care to remember and many of his little "arms" have snapped in two.
So if you are moving to Denmark and have heard stories about the weather (which by the way, are TRUE!!), do not think to yourself,
"Hey I should get one of those cute purse-sized umbrellas before I move because I heard you should always have an umbrella on you in DK because the rain just comes at the most random times."
Yes, the rain comes at the most random times, but a $10 cute umbrella will never survive in Denmark because in Denmark, the rain does not just pour straight down from the sky.... Rather, Denmark should be renamed
"The Land of the SIDEWAYS Rain."
I'm serious. Just wait.... You'll see!
