Weekend Writing Prompt: Strangest Place to Leave your…

We’ve all done it before. We’ve all left our keys somewhere odd. “Now, why did I put these here?” we ask ourselves.

It is a part of human nature to place something important in an odd place when we are distracted. So work this into a story or poem.

It took two days to find them.
