Several days ago as I left a meeting at our church,
I desperately gave myself a personal TSA pat down.
I was looking for my keys. They were not in my
pockets or purse. A quick search in the meeting
room revealed nothing.

Suddenly I realized, I must have left them in the car.
Frantically, I headed for the parking lot. My husband,
David, has scolded me many times for leaving the
keys in the ignition. My theory is the ignition is the
best place not to lose them. His theory is that the car
will be stolen. As I burst through the doors of the
church, I came to a terrifying conclusion. His theory
was right. The parking lot was empty.

I immediately called the police. I gave them my
location, confessed that I had left my keys in the car,
and that it had been stolen. Then I made the most
difficult call of all, “Honey,” I stammered. I always call
him “honey” in times like these. “I left my keys in the
car, and it has been stolen.”

There was a period of silence. I thought the call had
been dropped, but then I heard David’s voice. “Betty”
he barked, “I dropped you off!” Now it was my time
to be silent. Embarrassed, I said, “Well, come and
get me.” David retorted, “I will, as soon as I convince
this policeman I have not stolen your car?”
