This is neither telling nor profound. Perhaps it is just a cultural difference, like how my French friends cringe at the thought of anything but sugar, a cigarette, sugar, a simple carb, and a side of sugar for breakfast, but I don’t think I have ever seen anyone in the States use an umbrella in the snow. Yet here in Paris, when the snow comes, it is common practice to have a portable roof.
Does this stem from a desperate need to accessorize? Is it logical?
Was I simply blinded to this common practice in New York and Chicago?
What do you guys think?
