Where are my keys? Where is my mind?
Yesterday morning I had a “moment” when I went on a rare doughnut trip with my 3 year old. We typically eat a more healthy breakfast, but from time to time, it’s nice to have a treat. I had inadvertently left my wallet in my car the night before, and realized this (thankfully) before leaving in my wife’s car. I went to mine to get the wallet. I saw a blanket in the back seat and thought my daughter, Charlotte, would like it so I took it to her. We then left for the doughnut shop. After I had selected my dozen (and biscuits and gravy for my wife) I went to check out and realized… My wallet was still in my car! So I had them hold my food and drove back home to get my wallet, then back to the doughnut shop to get my food. I waited in line, then realized… I left my wallet in the car! So I had to go out to get my wallet and come back in. in the meantime, someone bought the last of the biscuits and gravy. So then I had to wait for more. When they were done, I paid, and back to the car we went. placed everything in the passenger seat. No car keys. I left them on the counter inside! I went in and got them, and when I got back my wife asked if we had decided to go for a drive. I had to explain the morning’s events. We all forget our keys, wallets, etc., from time to time. Leave it to me to forget wallet and keys multiple times in one trip! For the longest time after this, I was literally afraid to go out for errands for months after this.
