Ignite A Search

| Related | January 21, 2016

(My mom is rather absent-minded. We’ve stopped for gas and a snack on a long car trip, and have just returned to the car. While I’m distracted setting up the map on my phone, she starts searching for something in her stuff in the back seat.)

Mom: “Where is it?!”

Me: “What did you lose?”

Mom: “The key! I used it to unlock the door, and now I can’t find it.”

Me: “I’m impressed. Is it in your purse?”

Mom: “No.”

Me: *turning towards her* “How did you manage to lose it this qui— It’s in the ignition!”

(Later, just after we arrive.)

Mom: “I can’t find my stupid phone!”

Me: “Have you checked the ignition?”
