I don't understand why the answer to 114 down "Like somebody under an umbrella" is "wet" when it should be "dry"

114D is DRY.
It's 9D "Like somebody without an umbrella, and what’s added to four starred answers" that is WET.

I did the puzzle on the website, so I didn't see until now that the PDF is colored in with the wet and dry areas. Cute!
And the four starred answers that need a "wet" are above the umbrella in the wet area and the four that need a "dry" are below it.
