Spare Key

For the first time in my entire life, I locked myself out of the house this morning. What a horrible realization that was! Usually I have my keys in my pocket whenever I leave the house -even if it is just to go fetch the mail or pick up the newspaper from the sidewalk.

For some reason, I didn’t think to take my keys with me. I must have been deep in thought or still half asleep, because I just never do that. But today – I did.

Thank goodness I have given a spare key to my neighbor and she had not left for work yet. She got the spare key and and let me back in. I sure did feel stupid this morning, but I’m so glad I had the foresight to make a spare key and give it to someone for safekeeping.
