Umbrella: a collapsible shade for protection against weather consisting of fabric stretched over hinged ribs radiating from a central pole; especially : a small one for carrying in the hand - Merriam Webster
Ok, I have to brag. I have the coolest umbrella ever. Granted, I can't stand the reason as to why I actually have to use it (because that means it's raining) but the Mary Poppin's parrot head umbrella makes a rainy day a bit more tolerable. Also, as the parrot head handle is quite heavy, I feel protected from any evil doers as it can serve as a nice piece of hardware to knock someone out with! I think every one should have one.
