Being Special

by: Lloyd Tackitt 1/9/2013

Okay, this isn't exactly fishing related, but it's still worth noting.

Want to know how special I am?

This morning it's raining hard. I look behind the seat and find an umbrella. I vaguely notice that it has some pink showing in the folds now - used to be solid black. It's early and I'm still sleepy so I don't give it much thought. When I get out of my truck I open the umbrella and begin the block long walk from the parking place to the office - along with about a thousand other people. 

Want to know how really special I am? I was the only one - absolutely the only one - with a Tinker Bell umbrella. She was on opposite sides of the umbrella too, so there was no way to turn it that she didn't shout to the whole world that "Here strolls a special man!". 

Once I figured out why everyone was looking at me and laughing, it was way too late to fold it up and just get wet. So I went with it, and let me tell you, it's hard to go with a mostly pink umbrella decorated with Tinker Bell. But I did my best, special person that I am...

When I get home, someone else is going to have a very special day too.

Better on the street with strangers, than on the water with fishing buddies! They tend to never forget or forgive.

As long as you weren't skipping on the way to the office with the Tinkerbell umbrella, then we would really need to worry!

It dose take a special man to use a tb umbrella or anything tb for that matter. Good work on having an umbrella though. Way to be prepared. I would have probly started laughing at you while i was getting wet if i seen it.

Funny thing... Had I seen you I would have thought That guy's resourceful" and Heck he's lucky enough to know somebody that has a Tinkerbell umbrella!! Tinkerbell... she would understand as well. But Ajax is right no skipping and leave the Tu Tu at home. Laugh and move on. Be carefull about who else "has a special day" you may find out that it was really you that mistakenly put Tinkerbell in the truck.
