My first husband once went to borrow a circular saw from our landlord.
He left our trailer and a little while later returned with a look of consternation on his face. -- He was holding a black umbrella.
He said, "I think Frank must be drunk!"
I asked why he thought so and he said," I asked him for a power saw and he hunted around and handed me this umbrella!".
I laughed until I was crying...in my husband's DE accent, his request sounded like "parasol"!
I have no idea why I just thought of that....it happened over 25 years ago!
