It was a spring morning. There wasn't a cloud in the sky, and the sun was warm but not too hot, so Mr. Andrews was surprised when he saw an old genltman at the bus stop witha big black umbrella in his hand.
Mr. Andrews said to him, "Are we going to have rain today, do you think?"
"No," said the old man. "I don't think so."
"Then are you carrying the umbrella to keep the sun off you?"
"No, the sun is not very hot in spring."
Mr. Andrews looked at the big umbrella again, and the gentleman said, "I'm an old man, and my legs are not very strong, so I really need a walking-stick. But when I carry a walking-stick, people say 'look at that poor old man', and I don't like that. When I carry an umbrella in fine weather, people only say, look at that stupid man!"
