    Having had a clark type-I melanoma, I really hate the sun, but it’s that season again. I was thinking of using an umbrella when it’s really sunny and I have the misfortune of going outside.

    I’m curious to know what will pop up in people’s thought bubbles when they see such a thing icon_twisted.gif

    Black umbrella, parrot handle. Pack lunch in a carpet-bag (I wonder how many will know what that is, lol). Sensible shoes. Dark clothes and voila, Marvin Poppins, Mary's gay cousin.

    PS if people laugh, smile sweetly and politely tell them to shove a f***ing spoon full sugar.

    But, seriously, if you want to carry an umbrella, and anybody says anything, scream at them, "I have skin cancer !"

    You'd be amazed at how cool it keeps you in the hot sun.

    When I go out I shall wear purple
    With a red hat which doesn't go, and doesn't suit me.
    And I shall spend my money on brandy and summer gloves
    And satin sandals, and say we've no money for butter.
    I shall sit down on the pavement when I'm tired
    And gobble up samples in shops and press alarm bells
    And run my stick along the public railings
    And make up for the sobriety of yesterday.
    I shall go out in my slippers in the rain
    And pick the flowers in other people's gardens
    And learn to spit

    You can wear terrible shirts and grow more fat
    And eat three pounds of sausages at a go
    Or only bread and pickle for a week
    And hoard pens and pencils and beermats and things in boxes

    But now we must have clothes that keep us dry
    And pay our rent and not swear in the street
    And set a good example for the children.
    We must have friends to dinner and read the papers.

    But maybe I ought to practice a little now?
    So people who know me are not too shocked and surprised
    When suddenly I go out, and start to wear purple.

    In other words do what you damn well want, and need, to do. And f*** other people's opinion

    People are going to judge you, there's no getting around that. Just as if you walked with a limp or were missing an arm. You can't explain to every person why you need an umbrella. So, ignore the stares and just live your life. You know the reason you need it, that should be good enough.

    If you move to Williamsburg, you'll start a new trend.

    Looking forward to seeing you on the cover of Vice magazine.

    I should have known! You are already hip!

    As for the other misguided sun worshipers... don't worry, they will follow your example if you practice your "trendy" face.
