Lost

"Car keys????!"

"Where did you leave them?"

My brain spontaneously combusts.

"You check the car door?"

"Yes."

"Hood?"

"No."

"How can you lose your keys every day?"

"It's a gift. And a curse."


Trifextra: Week Eight

This weekend's challenge is to write a story entitled 'Lost' in exactly 33 words. The word 'lost' can only appear in the title, not your 33 words.

Sorry...I'm still on this, so I have to do one more. Here is some internal dialogue:

Lost

Don't panic. You drove here! They have to be around here somewhere. Belt loop? Purse? Again, purse? Diaper bag? Car door? Other belt loop? Pockets? Really? Wait. They're in your hand, dumbass. Seriously?

  7. Cute. I never used to lose things so often until I became a dad. Kids eat your brain.

  9. Sounds just exactly like me. I'm TERRIBLE for losing the keys, my pohone, at the moment my wallet, and all kinds of essentials.

  14. Good one! My problem? I rarely ever put my keys and purse in the same spot when I get home. Sometimes they're thrown on the table, sometimes on my dresser!

    1. Keys: vanity in my bedroom under a heap of stuffed animals(not my stuffed animals)

      Phone: bedside table

      Wallet: kitchen counter(I hope)
      There is a chance I won't be late for my appointment this morning. :o)
