I know I've been ill but how can you lose a day? That's just plain stupid. Here I was all morning thinking it was Thursday and it's actually Friday. It's not like I can walk backwards to get it back either.
I can understand losing your keys, or a hat but some things cannot be found again.
I lost my virginity. Well, where did you leave it? In the bed I think. DOH - too late
I lost my temper. Careless indeed and even you you find calm instead, it will not replaced whatever you smashed at the time.
I lost my way - ugh, you like Frank Sinatra or were you clever and lost the Pistols version, easier done as it's anarchic.
They even did a whole series of programs called Lost. I never watched it, I mean how boring would that be?
*Cut to two survivors on a desert island*
"What happened?" - "I lost my keys" "But how?" "Well, when the plane crashed into the mountain, and everyone rolled downhill to the beach, they must have just fallen out".
What next? - The sequel? FOUND. Lots of aircrash survivors get rescued by a boat, but the captain is really clever and brought a metal detector because he just knows that someone will have lost their keys.
I'd love to work in the Lost & Found office in some large place like Grand Central Station. This is a genuine list of some of the items there (coutesy of National Geographic magazine):-
(all usual stuff - now for the WTF's)
A pair of ear lobes (left by a plastic surgeon)
An Urn of ashes (deliberate as the woman hated her husbands cheating)
A very mournful looking basset hound
Some people eh? What's the strangest thing you've lost?
