    At thebeginning of Season three, when we are first introduced to the yellow umbrella, Future Ted makes a statement to this kids, that they already know the short version of how he met their mother. He mentions that it has something to do with a yellow umbrella, while he is saying this, we are shown a clip of a yellow umbrella blowing in the wind. Well, I started thinking, that what if something happens, where the umbrella blows out of her hand, possibly while a trains coming, and Ted runs after it for her (to later realize that it was the umbrella he used to own), and that's how they end up meeting. That could just possibly be the short version that the kids know.



    Thoughts?

    That's how I see it playing out.

    Yeah that seems pretty good. I'm sure the book will have something to do with it also, even if it's just "Hey, that's my favorite book!"
