For the past few months, Porgie has been playing with her umbrella in the car. The other morning, she opened the umbrella, held it over her head, and proclaimed that it was raining. John looked back and shook his head in disgust.
John: "It is bad luck to open an umbrella inside."
Me: "She does that all the time. It's no big deal."
John: "Maybe that is why the economy is crashing."
So in case you were wondering how the economy turned sour so fast, it was because my daughter opened her umbrella in the car. Sorry world.
