    • Roald Dahl: It is very seldom that a short story writer is able to make anything worth while out of an incident that actually happened, but this story is one of the rare exceptions. I myself met the umbrella man on a street in New York City and I followed him just as in the story and I was delighted and amazed by what I found. I must confess to you that I tried the same experiment myself a few days later to see if it really worked and it did. I only hope that on the next rainy day that comes along we wont have thousands of you going out and doing the same thing. It would cause chaos in the land.
