The Golden Years

Several days ago as I left a meeting at a hotel; I desperately gave myself a personal TSA pat down. I was looking for my keys. They were not in my pockets. A quick search in the meeting room revealed nothing.

Suddenly I realized I must have left them in the car. Frantically, I headed for the parking lot. My husband has scolded me many times for leaving the keys in the ignition. My theory is the ignition is the best place not to lose them. His theory is that the car will be stolen. As I burst through the door, I came to a terrifying conclusion. His theory was right. The parking lot was empty.

I immediately called the police. I gave them my location, confessed that I had left my keys in the car, and that it had been stolen. Then I made the most difficult call of all, "Honey," I stammered; I always call him "honey" in times like these. "I left my keys in the car and it has been stolen."

There was a period of silence. I thought the call had been dropped, but then I heard his voice. "Are you kiddin' me", he barked, "I dropped you off"!

Now it was my time to be silent. Embarrassed, I said, "Well, come and get me."

He retorted, "I will, as soon as I convince this policeman I have not stolen your car."

Yep it's the golden years!

  1. Oh my! I do not want to get to golden years! lol.
    Enjoy your weekend, Sandee!
    Hugs from Ohio,

  2. hahaha! My Dad tells me at least once a day, "Don't get old, kid!" i'm already forgetting tons of stuff!

    Have a lovely day! big hugs xoxo

  3. Ha ha! I'm sometimes glad I don't drive ;)

  4. This was funny, even though I'm also inclined to be scatterbrained like this, and I wonder how many times this actually happens. Probably more than you think.

  5. That really sounds a long the lines of something I would do. Not leave the keys in the car, but forget all kinds of other things. Old age just isn't any fun at all although it does have some perks. Take care Sandee and have a great weekend.

  6. I had mixed emotions on this one--wanting to laugh (b/c it was funny) AND cry (b/c it is starting to happen!). Such is life.

    Have a great w/e. Big hugs, honey...

  7. Loved it! I always lose my keys but usually in my purse.

  8. sounds like something I'd do... LOL!

  9. this does everyone's life!

  10. Thankfully, I'm not there yet, but my sister looses her keys, her wallet or her driver's liscense. I'm sad for her. Maybe a little bit oldtimers.

    Have a great weekend.

  11. Good story, Sandee! :) Most times it is the guy who does the stupid thing.
    BTW, I'm thinking this woman might be blonde?

  12. I can seriously relate to how easily this could happen :)

  13. tell zane that was a knee slapper!

    smiles, bee

  14. That's too funny!

  15. LMAO loved it and almost thought you was talking about yourself at first till I realised it was a joke lol :-0

  16. Yup, the golden year sneak up on us in a stampede.
