Today, it’s raining. Very cold rain…
In a rainy day, you could find a special stand for the plastic bags at the entrance of the supermarket like this.
You’re supposed to put it on your umbrella during shopping not to drip water drops on the floor. It is used only for that. When you leave the supermarket, you can throw it away in the trash can. (Mottainai!)
One American had said to me before that it looked like a condom for an umbrella. Oh my…I had never thought that way before, but since then every time I put on a plastic bag on my umbrella, I remember that word, and makes me uncomfortable to do it!
