Daniel lost one. Robin said he lost two. Why?

He = Daniel? Robin? Was Robin lying? Making a joke? Misinformed?

Are the things they lost living? Inanimate objects? Tangible? Are they things it’s common to own?

Are D and R both HAs? Genders relevant? Are the professions of either pertinent here?

Did they lost two of the same things? Could they have gained what they lost? Did R lost two as a consequence of the fact that D lost one? Had D lost 2 would R have lost 3? And so on?

Did they lost 1 and 2 at the same time? D before R? Viceversa? Relevant?
