Yesterday I could not find my magnetic key badge for work. I must have torn the house apart 3 times, looking in every conceivable spot, and even searching my car a few times, all to no avail. Well, this morning I went out to the car again to give it an even more thorough search. Within seconds I found it hiding between the passenger’s seat and the center compartment. It had been pushed down so I could not see the badge itself. And with both the badge reel and my seats being black, I didn’t notice it until I caught a glint of the aluminum clip.

Calamity diverted. I did not relish the idea of having to email the office manager and report I’d lost my badge. Just thinking about it causes a shutter to run down my spine.
