Locked Out 

I have no house key (gave it to my parents), no car (gave it to my husband), and no office key (left it at home). 

I managed to get myself home from work courtesy of Uber but I can’t get inside the house. It’s hot and I’m very thirsty. I’m sitting on the verandah, looking at a big fat bottle of mineral water in my dinner table that I can’t reach because I’m locked out.

My parents have never lived in a small American town, so they lock up so tight you’d think this is Fort Knox.

  2. I always make sure that one of my neighbors has a key to my house for this reason. It helps only rarely, but I have been glad that I did it.

    • I’ve been trying to strike up a conversation with a neighbor who has a little boy Klara’s age. But she freaks out every time I say hi. The neighbor on the other side of our house freaks out even more. It’s the Midwest. People are terrified of human contact. Especially if the human in question has an accent.
