I have reason to believe that the umbrella is the personal possession one always leave behind. Can you remember how many umbrellas have you lost?

haha, funny ORIGINAL question d: I can remember destroying one or two umbrellas by wind outside. But I do have A LOT of umbrellas, because whenever it starts to rain an I am outside, I have of course forgotten the umbrella, and then I buy a knew one. Stupid maybe, but anyway.

That is interesting. When I was a child, I have lost more than 4 umbrellas in a single week and i still fondly remember the scoldings I got from my mother when I lost 4 of them in a week. Everyday While going to school, she would give me an umbrella which I would be loosing as it would go out of my hand due to heavy winds. So she finally decided to get me a Rain coat so that I cannot loose them due to heavy rains. Lolz. She must have done it earlier as 4 umbrellas would have been saved on that week had she done that.

Probably one or two through out the years i've lived so far. But the other day, i had my brothers umbrella and i lent it to my friend. When i next saw him he'd broken it, after all the trouble i went through trying to protect it from harm... Atleast he offered to buy a new one :p

An umbrella could be a precious possession. I am glad you have a new one. With better features like the close/open push buttons and a better design I hope.

This is a very very interesting question because I have lost a lot of umbrellas. I can't count it, but I think it might be around ten. Please ask how many umbrellas did my dad lost, it might be around 15. I am not good at keep umbreallas and hanky's. I will lost it often and my mother had a hard time advicing me not to loose it. I am sorry for it, but I can't help. Now, I am 26 years old and even now I loose umbreallas.

I lost almost 5 umbrellas in last 2 years. I gor left it in jeepneys, department store or anywhere I sit up and got a busy mind forgotting it. If I try to go back there, my umbrella was gone already. I'm sad if I lost my things. Sometimes my forgetfulness cannot be avoided.

Here's a memory enhancer according to JFK - always pause a few moments and recall all the things you've seen as you passed by a shop. Go back and actually look at the things you have forgotten in your recall moments. Have fun.
