A Perfectly Normal Place For Keys

I had to take Matt's car grocery shopping today. That is not a big deal. What is a big deal? The reason why I had to take Matt's car grocery shopping: my keys were no where to be found.

When I drive my car, the keys immediately go into the exact same little pocket in my purse. Matt drove today though and he usually just tosses the keys on the counter. That is a a perfectly normal place to put one's car keys if you don't have two little boys who love to take things and hide them away somewhere.

Since I no longer live in the city, but in the suburbs, I absolutely need my car keys. I can't just say "oh well!" and look for them over the next couple days. I can't walk to everything anymore. That is why if you drove by my house tonight, you would have seen Matt and me outside with flashlights, searching the yard for keys that may or may not be there.

After a thorough search of the entire house, we began the outdoor search. Not too long after we went out, my flashlight beam hit a toy in the yard that should not have been there. That has Mitchell or Jack written all over it. That's a good sign. We should look inside that space ship to see if someone thought it would be a good place to store some car keys and fly them out to the back yard.

Yep. The keys were inside the space ship parked on the lawn under the rope swing. That's a perfectly normal place for them, right? Why didn't I look there first?

Where is the funniest place you have ever found your keys?
