    Rarely And It's Beacuse...

    I like to walk in the rain, to see how raindrops dissolve in the cloth of my t-shirt or jacket. And I like to jump in puddles.  I don't like umbrellas for a certain reason.   Here, it's very windy and I can't drive the umbrella when I fly due to wind with it. ...

    When I Can I Won't

    Unless I have to be somewhere, I always chose to walk in the rian without an umbrella. I find it invigorating and refreshing. It cleans the soul and the mind, and washes away all the 'dirt' collected. It's healing.

    Every time in rains, I'll go out

    and just stand there with my arms out, my head back and my tongue out to catch raindrops. It's so calming. Almost an escape.

    Forgetful

    I always forget an umbrella, so I never even have one to use. Be that as it may, I enjoy not using one anyways. The rain feels good. When it drenches me, I just have to laugh at my own expense. I tend to look like a drowned cat when wet, so I appear positively ridiculous :P Why...

    I find it pointless .

    In The Rain

    I don't think it's actually possible to hold an

    umbrella while keeping all the crap you're holding dry and get somewhere in time so what the heck, let's just use the crap as shelter and run like hell in the rain :P definitely wayy more fun anyways!

    When It Rains...

    I walk while everyone else runs if I am caught in the rain. It never surprises me though, I can smell the rain in the air about a day before it comes. I like to let the cool drops hit my face as I look into the sky, it makes me have a feeling...like there is something good I...

    Its always amused me when people get upset about getting wet when its raining and act as though its going to melt them or something. I've always enjoyed the way it feels to just go stand out in the middle of my yard during a summer rainshower. I used to make a habit of walking to...

    It's not that I won't use one.

    It's because keeping track of an umbrella for the few times I'd need one is just unnecessary. I am so very dedicated to an uncomplicated maintenance free lifestyle! Keep life simple and enjoy every raindrop!

    Rain

    Nothing is sweeter than walking through the rain without an umbrella, feeling the raindrops falling upon you, dancing in the rain, jumping in puddles, and just feeling the refreshing drops upon your body :) Ohhhhh how I love the rain :)

    Its just a habit of mine.

    Even when there's gonna be a storm, I don't bring it. My Aunt used to always remind me to take an umbrella with me and i always say i have it in my bag but its a lie. I just like the rain. I remember always going home soaked cause of the rain. And actually I don't mind if I...

    I Probably Should

    I don't really like the way the cold drops feel when they hit me. Sometimes I like to be in the rain, but that's not very often.

    I love to feel the rain pouring down my back, pelting my head, soaking my clothes... It may sound weird, but it's really fun. Just letting go and embracing the rain like you used to when you were a kid and pulled on your gum rubbers and jumped in the biggest puddle in your...

    Rain Is A Novelity

      Rain is a rare occurrence where I live so umbrellas are rarely locatable, let alone used.  LOL, our roof is barely holding up...we decided that it wasn't worth replacing as it rarely rains!!

    Walking in the rain has always been a peaceful

    experience for me. I don't know what it is about being consumed by the rain that makes me feel so calm, but I always considered it a bit therapeutic.

    Running In The Rain

    I met Bobby when I was 9 years old. We were in the same class in grade 4. At that time, I developed a little girl crush on him, which was not reciprocated, but he did decide I was good enough to have as a best friend; even better, in my opinion. When we were in grade 5, my family...

    I'm really short so it's awkward for me to use one as it be in everyone's way and probably poke everyone out with it as well as can't see where I'm going! I dislike carrying anything so I won't carry a umbrella as after a while it hurts my arm! As well as having to keep...

    Not Never But Often I Don't

    The reason I don't use umbrella first of all is that I hate to carry the umbrella with me all the time. My mother always says to me to carry the umbrella since my birth date. But I've always try to avoid the carrying of the umbrella. The time I couldn't avoid this when I was...

    Because It's Not Irish

    When I was traveling in Ireland, I didn't have an umbrella. When I was in a pub, one of the locals told me that only tourists are the ones with umbrellas. The rest of my trip, I took note, and found that to be mostly true. Ever since then I almost never use one, and my friends...

    I'm Singing In The Rain...just Minus The Umbrella!

    I realised today as I dashed between rain drops, skipping puddles and ducking for cover that I never ever have an umbrella.  We do not even have umbrellas in the house. I raced from front doors, to car doors, to shop doors and into classroom doors. All the time, running...

    But I never use them. Most of the time, I don't mind getting wet, unless I spent a long time getting ready or I'm wearing something expensive or that will get ruined. But even then, I rarely use an umbrella. I just never remember to grab it on the way out. My roommate bought me...
