olvidé vs me olvidé

Hello! 

"Ayer fui a la piscina y ____ la toalla."

I put "me olvidé" but got it wrong, it said "olvidé" was correct. I'm aware that you can use olvidé alone, but is me olvidé wrong? The "hint" on the bottom says "Use the grammatically correct form used with the verb olvidar."

Hola Elias

It's correct to use "me olvidé" as long as you add "de": Me olvidé de la toalla.

There´s a TIP in the first part of the lesson, showing in pink, as a reminder to not forget that "de".

I hope it clarified it.

Saludos
