Can you dig it?

June 10, 2015 - 1:41pm
It happens every morning. After hauling myself up the 99 steps to my office (yes, the elevator is still out and yes, I still count them) I end up standing outside my locked office door digging around in my purse for my keys. No matter what, my key ring is always the very last thing I find. How does that happen? How can it always be at the bottom? Why does it hide from me? It's not like I have a huge purse so it really shouldn't be that hard. Here are all the things I had to dig through today to find my keys: a wallet (complete with Spartan helmet on it), my phone, my car key, a pair of reading glasses, a pack of gum, a thumb drive (also with Spartan helmet) two partially unwrapped pieces of gum, a mint, two purple pens, three lipsticks, one lip gloss, two tins of Lush perfume, two tickets to my niece's graduation (which was last Sunday), a movie ticket (from two weeks ago), an eyeliner and mascara (never again, people, never again). My purse is actually very small - I pared down years ago. It doesn't even have extra pockets or zippers. Back in the day when I carried a much bigger purse I jammed so much useless stuff into it, I swear if I dug around enough I'd have found the Ark of the Covenant. And yet, it's still a major excavation at my door every morning just to find that tiny silver ring with three keys on it. For the amount of time it takes, you'd think I was digging around the huge construction holes that are in front of Olds Hall right now.
