Duh... If I Knew That

August 21st, 2012

Last night I was on my way out to meet someone when I couldn't find da truck keys. I looked for about ten minutes tossing and turning things over but couldn't find it.

And da classic conversation ensues:

BL: BABE! You seen da truck keys?
Da Wife: The what?
BL: DA T-R-U-CK KEEEEEEYS!
Da Wife: Where'd you last put it?
BL: :roll:

Wassup Wit Dat!

How come it's always li'dat yeah? Someone always gotta ask, "wea you wen put 'em last?" Really, if we knew wea we wen leave 'em last, would we be in dis predicament?

Naturally I try to retrace my steps:

Come home, move da truck, move da bike, let Da Dog out, check da mail, pick up Da Dog's doo-doo, wipe down Da Dog, walk through da garage, look for stuff on da dining table, send a quick email, exercise, start making kim chee.

So I ended up taking da bike to meet dis guy but he nevah recognize at first cause I told him I was coming in da truck. Ai-goo.

I come home and go back and forth through my steps but nada. I tear threw da garage like a hurricane, I rip threw da dining table like one tornado then I start to go shmall kine nuts like da SupahFerry. I check inside da truck, on da bike, around Da Baby's toys - a'ole.

Wea da buggah stay?!?

I go back to making kim chee still trying to trace my steps since I already tossed and turned practically everything in da house. So I figgah I get da spare keys for Da Wife to use da next day.......

Geez, now wea da spare keys stay?? Dis really sucks okole!

Finally aftah midnight it hits me..... walk outside to da rock wall and there it is. Sitting pretty on top of da mail dat I put down so I could pick up da doo-doo.

Damn dog!

Don't you hate wen dat happens? Wen it's so easy yet so stupid. :oops:

Have you evah gone pupule looking for something? Have you evah been sooooo sure dat it was in one area only latah to find out you was totally off? Isn't dat "conversation" so funny dat it makes you mad?

Now wea did I leave dat key clapper?

    Howzit BL,

    Almost everytime I use my wife kar, no can find da keys and she doe no whea stay too. She always looking fo da check book, always looking fo da Costco book, always looking fo da bills to pay. Waste so much time looking fo da tings.

  4. dihudfan:

    as usual it's in the place you no think would be... main ting you found the buggah... happens to me more often now... auwe


  5. Manoa Mist:

    Dude, make a little box. Put it somewhere like on the kitchen table or in the hallway or something. When you come home, you drop the keys and maybe the wallet and phone inside that buggah. Get into the habit that the box is where the keys always stay. Works like a charm.


  6. hemajang:

    Hate it when I go in da bedroom and think, "what I came here fo?"

    They say the mind's the first thing to go... :-)

    Welcome to 'old fut' age! Nanana... you not 'old' yet... just getting there step by step. ;-)

    One ting... if you make one nice box to put your keys & wallet & stuff in and get all habituated to puttin' them in there, the day you forget to put 'em in there you REALLY going go nuts looking for 'em, let me tell you. Been there done that.


  8. kamaaina808:

  12. 2B:

    Why you gotta blame da dog for? It's your dodo head that cannot multitask come on who can't hold da keys, mail, and pick up one lawn bomb?

    S/he could have gone doo doo in da house den you would have been more pissed right?

    Better yet good thing nevah rain on your keys then da alarm thing would be all messed up and you would have been more pissed.......at da dog.

  17. 9thIslandGirl:

    Oh boy, I can relate to the forgetting what I was supposed to do when I walk in the room. However, because my mom was the queen of llosing her keys, pretty much every day, I did what your readers suggest and always drop my keys into my drawer as soon as I get home.


  18. SittingInLimbo:

    lucky thing your truck was still there! I have done the samething too. Drive me nuts. Especially if you just went look lets say on the tv didn't have it, then all of sudden BOOM it's there. Drive me more crazy! :| spirits maybe? lmfao.

    HA HA HA! Well if I can't blame da dog... who I going blame?

    S/he could have gone doo doo in da house den you would have been more pissed right?

    But at least I would have found da doo-doo.

    Better yet good thing nevah rain on your keys then da alarm thing would be all messed up and you would have been more pissed.......at da dog.

    Negative. Da truck keys is separated from da alarm fob plus da fob stay "water-resistant" and no, it wouldn't have been da dog's fault.... I would have blamed it on da rain. :lol:
