Ahhhh....the Golden Years.

Several days ago as I left a meeting at a hotel; I desperately gave myself a personal TSA pat down.

I was looking for my keys. They were not on me. A quick search in the meeting room revealed nothing.

Suddenly I realized I must have left them in the car. Frantically, I headed for the parking lot.

My spouse has scolded me many times for leaving the keys in the ignition.

My theory is the ignition is the best place not to lose them.

Her theory is that the car will be stolen. As I burst through the door, I came to a terrifying conclusion.

Her theory was right. The parking lot was empty.

I immediately called the police. I gave them my location, confessed that I had left my keys in the car, and that it had been stolen.

Then I made the most difficult call of all, "Honey," I stammered; I always say "honey" in times like these.

"I left my keys in the car, and it has been stolen."

There was a period of silence. I thought the call had been dropped, but then I heard a voice.

"Idiot"..., "I dropped you off!"

Now it was my time to be silent. Embarrassed, I said, "Well, come and get me."

"I will, as soon as I convince this policeman I have not stolen your car."

Yep........it's the golden years.

2. Sadly, a friend of mine reported a car stolen under similar circumstances...

In his late 20s. Not just a "golden year thing". By the way, this *really* happened to my friend.
