I felt VERY exhausted when a TOEIC test was over, since I had been so involved and concentrated during the test. No extra time was left even though I had tried to read fast at the reading section. Hoping that I can get my best score ever! ;-)
It happened in last December. One day I was shocked to see my umbrella lost in an umbrella stand when I was leaving my office. I thought it was stolen! Then I looked around the stand and found a very similar umbrella, which has the same color, the same size, but with a different button. The button needs two-step action to open with both hands, but mine needs only one action with one hand.*1 I was kind of relieved because I thought someone had picked up my umbrella by mistake, not on purpose.
I have kept checking the umbrella stand on every rainy day, and I finally found it yesterday! I grabbed my umbrella back and went home. I'm sure that's my real umbrella because I know one of the umbrella ribs is twisted a little ;-)
