I used to have a wad of keys that I could have used to attack a gorilla. I might not of won, but my weapon would have evened things up a little. Now, my keys couldn't take out a baby lab rat.
At the height of my key capacity I had a key for:
- My apartment.
- My boyfriend's apartment.
- My parents' house—front and back doors.
- My parents's car.
- My car.
- The library, where I worked.
- My desk at the library.
- The library library story hour room
- The Junior League office.
Then the key evolution began. First I got married to the boyfriend so two apartment keys became one house key. However, I gained a key to his car, so there was no loss. In fact, if I remember correctly, he had a separate trunk key so, I added one .
Then I quit my job at the library. Three keys gone.
Then I finally had to sense to take sustainer status in Junior League, so I didn't need in the office anymore. They took my key.
Somewhere along the way, The Guy got a vehicle with only one key.
Now I have a house key (front and back door are the same), his car, my car.
I do have house keys for a couple friends, but I don't carry those. I have a safety deposit box key and no fool carries that.
Three little keys. I can't say my life is much simpler.
I bet you think I am about to liken all this to the phases of life or compare it to writing.
I just want to know how many keys you carry.
