Parasols

I just realized two things about parasols:
1. They are made of lace because, not in spite, of the translucency of the fabric. So *some* but not all sun gets in. That makes sense, right? I always thought it was supposed to block all sun.
2. "Parasol" is either French or Spanish (or both) for "for sun." Para (for) sol (sun). Totally obvious, but I never noticed it before!

None of this information will ever help me in any way... nor does anyone ever use parasols anymore..... but still...
