WE KNOW HOW you feel. It’s only Monday afternoon but already it feels like the week is dragging out.
So do like we do here at TheJournal.ie HQ and get stuck into a serious debate on one of life’s most pressing issues to distract yourself.
This week: Yes, it’s October, but does it have to rain ALL THE TIME? It’s starting to feel like the summer heatwave was just a figment of our cold, wet imaginations.
But since we can’t beat it, we can at least try to fight it using all the weapons at our disposal, which means making a decision: brolly or a hood?
Both have their upsides (mainly involving their ability to keep you dry) but the negatives are what force you to make a choice: umbrellas drip, and turn crowded streets into obstacle courses, while hoods can’t protect most of your body and can be useless in a heavy shower.
It’s a tough call.
So over to you: Do you use a hood or a brolly to protect you from the rain?
