Keyless My Life 31 AUG 2007

bunch of keysSo I was off sick yesterday from work (not that it stopped me working from home of course), but seeing as I’m feeling a bit better today (note I said a bit, not a lot) I thought Id better shuffle in and get some stuff done. Even with my working off my laptop yesterday, there was some work which I couldnt do remotely, so I thought that seeing as today is my half day again, I’d better come into work super duper early to get everything done that needs to be done so that I can leave at 12 sharp.

So plans were made, I went to bed (round 12 last night, got home from C and then finished the last couple of levels of Lord of the Rings: Return of the King), woke up at 5, had breakfast, got ready and prepared to leave at 5:30 only to discover that I couldn’t find my office keys! I looked high and low (which is something I don’t have to do very often seeing as I am usually quite organised), but to no avail. The damn keys were nowhere to be found – which didn’t help my super duper early to work plan one bit.

So I was forced to hunker down and waste time playing some games until 6 which is the latest I can leave if travelling into UCT by car if I wish to avoid heavy traffic flow. Eventually I got to work round 6:30, trundled up the stairs, thanked my lucky stars that the boss was already at work (meaning I can get into the office) and dumped all my stuff onto my desk.

The final step of which was to take off my long top and hang it over the backrest of my chair.

And of course, as I turned the top upside down over the chair, what should fall out of one of its pockets but wait for it… my damn keys.
