My Yellow Umbrella
I am very forgetful. I often forget where things are.
I have lost 6 umbrellas in the last year.
Four broke due to heavy winds, but I left the other two at restaurants.
Two months ago I decided that it was time to buy a compact umbrella, so I started looking.
I was looking for a tough umbrella that could resist heavy winds. I visited 3 different Lofts, 2 Tokyu Hands and every department store in Umeda and Namba. I couldn’t decide until last month. I found a yellow carbon (炭素) umbrella. It was perfect as it was durable, compact and light.
Most people I know have told me that I look like a elementary school student, but I think it is better to be safe than sorry. I think yellow is highly visible(目に見える), especially at night. It stands out so much that I don’t think I will lose it.
