I'm Not Nosy, I'm Concerned

As we were in Whataburger eating our Patty Melt and looking out over the green trees in the distance A truck wheeled in and parked catywhumpus taking up two parking spaces. I watched wondering who would park in such a way. They never got out so I began to wonder if the person was ill. Half way thinking I should go out and ask them if they were okay. Then in rethinking they may tell me to mind my own business. Maybe they were waiting for someone to have a meal with and they hadn't arrived yet. After about ten or fifteen minutes they backed out and started forward to where I could see it was an elderly man with a straw hat on. He continued on to the highway and left. We finished our meal and went to John's truck and searching my pocket I could find no key where I always put it. Just one key on a small keychain with one little palm tree on it. My favorite key. Is that normal to have a favorite key? We searched inside, an employee searched the trash. I drove up there so the key has to be between the truck and Whataburger or inside. No key anywhere. I still feel it was on the mat in front of the drinks but my eyes were so blurry from searching in the sun on the parking lot. Some nice people offered to bring me home to get another set of keys. Thank goodness I could get into the house and knew exactly where they were so I didn't make a fool of myself again. Turned out they know a lot of people we know so all is good but-----what happened to my favorite key with the small keychain with a palm tree on it????

Maybe the fellow in the truck found it took it with him. I understand as you would not believe some of the things I do. Best to keep my mouth shut.

I too have been curious when someone does something 'abnormal'. Gets me to thinking (at times that ain't good!)

That is what is nice about familiar areas or hometowns. Folks ARE accommodating.Glad you got the extra key. But you usually solve mysteries, not create them. ;-)

I do wonder what happened to the key...I hope the next time you are back to the restaurant that they have found it! Also, glad to see a post from you...I was beginning to wonder if something was wrong.

Maybe the old man pulled in to talk on his phone? Maybe he was checking a map. Odd about your key. Once in awhile I'll put something somewhere ridiculous because I am hurrying to do something else or my mind is on something totally different.
