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 wife 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. Her theory is that the car will be stolen. As I burst through the door, I came to a terrifying conclusion. Her 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 her "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 her voice. "Idiot", she barked, "I dropped you off!" Now it was my time to be silent. Embarrassed, I said, "Well, come and get me." She retorted, "I will, as soon as I convince this policeman I have not stolen your car."
It was good enough without the visit from the policeman part, should've stopped with "I dropped you off!" Hilarious. I am younger than some here, but I too have started to experience golden moments.
I always thought it was crazy how some adults would sometimes just fade off in the middle of a sentence and not bother to continue. I now see it is because they lost the word they needed, as they stopped to procure it from memory, they lost what they were doing with the sentence, so they just decide to quit while they are ahead.
My wife was nice enough to make me a lunch just a few days ago. She puts a note on the computer if she does this b/c she goes to bed later than me. I walked all the way to the station before I remembered seeing the note. Walked all the way back, and it wasn't until I put my hand on the refrigerator door that I remembered I HAD remembered to get my lunch. I had forgotten remembering. Not as funny as the story above, but just as.....what was I saying?
