Keys... The Keys to Everything! (updated)

This isn't about the key to happiness. Or even the keys to success. This entry is about my keys. #$(*&(* The ones I can't FIND!

I've looked everywhere. EVERY. WHERE. And still they elude me.

The upside is that I cleaned the couch... you know, the stuff you find when you pick up the cusions. That kind of clean-up. No keys, though.

The funny thing is, I had them in my hands this morning when I went out to have a cigarette. (It was still dark out, too.) I had them in my hands because what I was wearing didn't have any pockets. When I stumbled back in and put down my "portable ashtray" I remember having a thought about trouble finding the keys. And I don't know why I would think that since I was putting everything on the coffee table.

I've got my 'portable ashtray' and my.... wait, do I have my lighter? Hold on a minute.

I'm back and, yes, I do have my lighter. And these things were all together with my keys.

The Universe is dinking around with me this morning. Sigh. Well... the only thing else I could think of doing was to write about the missing keys. I'm betting on finding the keys after I post this entry. I'll let you know.

About an Hour Later: I found them! (she's smiles with relief.) What an odd place, too. A place that I seldom use... but one that is with me always. I found them in my bra between my boobs. Go figure. But I remember standing outside with the ashtray, my lighter, and a cigarette as I tried to hang on to the keys. Thats when I had the brilliant idea to put the keys down into my bra. DUH. I totally spaced it out. But let me turn this into a hint for others to try if/when they need it. I think the secret to locating my keys was me relaxing and letting the thought of finding the keys go. Thats what I did (ahem, after asking the Universe to help me find them).... I took a break from looking through the garbage, you know... just in case, and was just sitting on the couch. There was a quick moment where, looking back on it, it seemed like I wasn't thinking of anything. A very quick moment. It was during that quick moment when a fleeting thought came through. The thought wasn't about the keys, but it was about the space between my boobs. It made me put my fingers down there... and viola!! After I stopped laughing, I came here to post the update. I knew it was just a matter of time before the keys showed up.

Opps, I had not finished LOLOLing.

too funny!! and yes, me too have been known to put my phone and cigarettes in my bra.....if my hands were full of something else.

Here is a prayer for lost item to St. Anthony.

Tony, Tony turn around.
Something is lost and must be found.

Say it 3 times......it usually works.....

Hilarious!!! All the comments are hilarious! If I stuck keys between by boobs, they'd fall out and make lots of noise. I'd never lose my keys that way! hahahaha

I love it! That's the first place I'll look next time I lose "something"!
Missed coming by, now I'm back from vacation and can visit again daily.

I often use your technique of asking the Universe for help when I lose things, and I always say thank you when I find them :-))) Sometimes it's in a very round-about way it happens too.
I can also relate to hiding stuff in your bra. I think I could conceal a small child in mine!
