My wife and I were discussing this post last night and remembered a table companion we had a breakfast one day. This woman was older and seemed to have been of some means. She spoke of traveling here and there. Someone mentioned Rome. Her response was something to the effect of, "Rome was terrible, it rained all day." To which another table mate, and my hero, said, "that's why I carry an umbrella!"
