Typically, most males do not bring umbrellas. When it rains, they just walk or run for it. Back in my college years, not so long ago, my friend Mai and I regard ourselves as men for we were lazy to take umbrellas for school, except for typhoon seasons.
But no… We do not walk or run through the rain. My friend and I ran before a rain hits, as a game.
‘Lets chance it!’ we would say, then me and my friend would just go for it - laughing and not minding if we get wet in our white uniforms or end up sick in bed the next day.
My poem Risking It All. May the rain be the least of our troubles.
