Today, I lost my favorite autumn-colored scarf (featured in this otherwise entirely inappropriate icon, even!) in the leaves and wind on the way to class. I'm annoyed with myself for not noticing it had fallen out of my pocket until I was almost to campus. On the way home, I kept an eye out for it, but it was so windy today, I was pretty sure it was a long-shot, and I would have had at least slightly better odds if it had been, say, a bright red scarf instead of a beautiful fall leaf colored one.
I hope someone found it and is delighted at their luck. I, sadly, am going to have a hard time finding a replacement.
