What type of person are you? You show up in a new and exciting city, New York, for instance. You're dressed and ready to go walk around and find something interesting, but you get downstairs and it's raining. Do you go back up to your hotel room and watch tv? Or, do you head out anyway, with no umbrella (California people don't use umbrellas much. I don't even have one.).
I used to choose the room, but now I'm looking forward to getting my hair wet in a strange city. A little water doesn't hurt, but leaving adventure behind does.
I've been safe and warm too long. Time to get out there and get my feet wet, literally or figuratively.
Of course, my first stop might be an umbrella stand. Or, maybe a store that sells those hats with the flaps. It's a strange city, I won't see anyone I know...
