Looking for the House Key

Paia, Haiku, and Pukalani, Maui

February 5, 2023

Yesterday I lost the spare house key.  Today Mark and I spent half the day looking for the key by retracing our steps from yesterday.  We searched the Safeway parking lot and checked in with their lost and found.  No luck.  I know it’s not the end of the world but it affects you when you know you have done something upsetting that could have been avoided.  This is the opposite of how I was feeling:

We left Safeway and went up to Pukalani to search the Farmer’s Market grounds.  We spent the best part of an hour scouring  the area with no luck.  No luck either at the auto parts store where I stopped to get a wrench.  Next we went to Haiku where we had lunch.  No luck there either.  On the way home I thought maybe I grabbed the key when I emptied my pocket of a napkin and several used handi-wipes at the food truck in Haiku.  We made a U-turn and headed back to Haiku where I went through the garbage can that I used.  No luck and disgusting as well.  I should have stopped and bought some gloves.

I had to admit defeat.

It was a bad day but still a great day.
