Let’s talk about those things we need for our front doors and to drive our cars: keys!
I am well-known for misplacing my keys in weird places, and thus if you have ever seen my keys you know why they look so obnoxious. I have a huge orange cattle tag, a Gearbox lanyard, and all sorts of flashy items on them in hopes they are easier to find.
Despite my anti-lost-keys system, it has backfired on me once. In high school, as I have mentioned in other stories, I was very active in the FFA (Future Farmers of America). I had just parked my truck and was walking across the field to get to the barnyard area of the fair when I realize I was missing my keys.
With a sigh, I spun myself around, re-crossed the street and started looking frantically all over the parking lot/field that I had just walked. At this point in time my keys had a large yellow cattle tag, a smaller yellow swine tag, Sailor Jupiter, and some weird noise flashy thing. To be honest, it was annoying but effective when it slipped under a cushion.
I had made it back to the truck, still no signs of my keys. The truck was locked, no keys in there for sure.
MY KEYS WERE LOST.
I started the long, sad walk back through the parking lot when suddenly I heard it. That annoying tune… but where? I was on all fours checking under cars, listening and moving closer. After several minutes I had pinpointed where it was the loudest. No, it wasn’t on the ground here. It sounded like it was coming from above me. Looking up, I saw it… there hanging above me was… SAILOR JUPITER!
