Stuff I Dig :: Lost and Found

We were on vacation at the beach.

I had come back from the beach with both girls.  As we got out of the car, I picked up wet towels, sandy shoes, the diaper bag and approximately 27 other small, hard-to-carry items.

We had lunch and I put the girls down for my favorite hour of the day nap time.  I started unpacking the bags, only to realize that I couldn’t find my car keys.  Obviously they were around somewhere since I’d driven back from the beach.

How hard can it be to find a pair of keys in a small beach house?

 

Apparently, it was mission impossible.

 

They weren’t in any of the beach bags.

 

Or the diaper bag.

 

Or wrapped in the towels.

 

Once the kids woke up (and I still hadn’t found the keys), I thought, “They’ll turn up.  I’ll just use B’s keys until then.”

 

A full day went by.

 

Then two.

Each night after the kids went to bed, we’d do a search for the keys.  We even went dumpster diving to see if they’d been thrown out by mistake. They were nowhere.

On the 3rd day, I got a text from my husband.  It said, “I found the keys.  You won’t believe it.  Picture coming.

A minute later I got this:

 

Thank God neither of my children flush. Ever.

 

 

Happy Labor Day, everybody.  And for the love of everything holy, hang on to your keys.

That is absolutely classic...and I think that B rocks for actually texting you a photo when he found them!

Not only did he text me but the man fished the keys out of the bowl AND thoroughly washed the key and fob. And it still works. Unbelievable.

UGH!! Gross!! My first thought was if your remote control still works. That MIGHT just be because I have three boys and have accepted the fact that keys in the toliet will definitely be in my future.

It still works!! I think Toyota should advertise that their key fobs work after a 2-day urine marinade. No? Too graphic?

Oh dear. We lost Brian's keys once, too. We got an extremely rare snow storm here on the coast of SC. Naturally, we went out and played in it like the big kids we are. The next morning, Brian's keys were no where to be found. Guess who trudged back out to dig through the snow? Fortunately, they were right were I knew they'd be. In the pocket area of the snow angel he'd made the night before. Fortunately, it wasn't "yellow" snow. ;)

Is it weird that yellow snow grosses me out way more than my kids' pee in the toilet? Yup, that's pretty weird. Glad you found the keys!!

Oh my gosh. That's something that would totally happen to me! I'm glad your fob still works. I think that would have been worse than lost keys!

You are totally right. I was panicked until I saw the remote door sliding open. :)

You know, we must share a brain. Because that was EXACTLY the other caption I had in mind for the toilet bowl picture. Hilarious.

Would you believe after 2 days of (ahem) marinating and a thorough, soapy, cleaning that the fob still WORKS? I love Toyota.
