I was trying to leave school today for lunch. I had packed up and picked up my bag and purse (yeah, they're two different things) and started walking out the door. I decided right inside the door to go ahead and get my keys out.
A little searching, no keys.
Put my purse and bag on the floor so I can really look while being completely in every one's way walking in or out. No keys.
I walk over to the lobby bench, sit down, put my keys next to me and keep looking for my keys for the next eight or nine minutes.
Did you get that? I PUT MY KEYS DOWN NEXT TO ME SO I COULD KEEP LOOKING FOR MY KEYS!
I did eventually see them out of the corner of my eye. As my mother would say, "If they had been a snake they would have bit me." This little story probably does nothing to help convince you I'm not a complete idiot does it?!
