Already on the doorstep, when entering the hallway, there is that instinctive thought that appears so automatically:
“Now, where do I put my umbrella, without getting everything wet and stained?”
There is a reasonable explanation for having it.
Mopping the floors (if you’re lucky and have tiles) or getting rid of stains (if you are unlucky and have a carpet) definitely, should not be your top priority after coming back home, soaking through, covered with mud after a long rainy day.
Don’t wait for dry and sunny days, there still is a long way ahead - all you need is an umbrella stand. If you don’t have it yet, you will see how handy it is.
