Get your umbrellas out because that's when I brainstorm
“A drought in the game is when the supply or demand starts to dry up — and that’s when resourceful hustlers have to start getting creative. If that means getting violent, the “brainstorming” might just lead to someone getting wet, as in bloody, which is why you need to get your umbrella out, for protection. It’s a dramatic, violent image to convey the way desperation and hunger can explode. (Carter 2010, p31) from Decoded.
