Last night I put my house key on top of my car tire. There’s no good explanation for doing such a dumb thing other than I didn’t have pockets and I temporarily needed full usage of both hands and I didn’t want to put the key on the body of the car plus I didn’t think the ground was a good spot. Well, in my haste, I placed the key too far back on the tire and I heard it go plink when it fell (I assumed it fell on the ground by the inner side of the tire). Got down on my hands and knees to pick it up. It was nowhere to be found on the ground. I pulled the car forward and still nothing on the driveway. Backed out the driveway and still no key on the ground. Reached my hand around the back of the crevices and couldn’t feel anything. %#^! Finally decided to remove the tire and there was the key buried in the little bucket slot. How on earth it defied gravity and ricocheted and got itself deposited in there without falling straight to the ground is beyond me.
I get stupid person of the week award. Lesson learned. No putting things on top of tires anymore.
