Hm. Funny Word It Is… ‘Bumbershoot

Wonders how many of you readers have heard of it I do.

Americanism it is but never really took on in the English language it didn’t.

It means: An umbrella is does.

“Mom it looks like rain, better bring a ‘bumbershoot’

Never heard of it before now I hadn’t.

But like it better than umbrella I do. 🙂
