Actually, I've occassionally found fascinating things after moving furniture about. You know, in that "wow, haven't seen that in years" sort of way. So, behind the couch?

RCC, you should take photos of the different rooms in your house and post them. Then we'll all shout "Look behind the vase! The one on the end table!" Make sure you mark with an "X" places you've already checked.

I would, but...

I need to find batteries for my cameral. I don't know where they are, and if I accidently find my car keys in looking for the batteries I may actually wind up in Finland, so...

I look in the cat's litter box all the time. It's cool. Sometimes I dig around to see what's underneath.

Oh...You meant...

Recently someone accused me of being insensitive. And I thought, how did this fat bitch get her wheelchair up the stairs to my house?

My wife's cat's litter box?

No, I'll leave that to her. That is pretty much the last place left to look, and for some reason I wouldn't be suprised....

Pockets. Not just what you have on, what you had on before. That means going through your closet just in case it was cold and you had a jacket on. And it may mean going through your laundry.

I'm guessing the keys are under the car, under the seat of the car (I once found mine wedged under the sliding support to the driver's side seat), or caught in the door such that when you open the door of the car they suddenly fall out on the ground.

I consolidate easily-lost stuff in highly ritualized places as mnemonics. My keys go on a keychain that sticks to my belt so if I try to leave the keys in my car, the keys try to pull my pants off--that reminds me quickly enough to take my keys. I'm not sure that would have worked back in my undergraduate years. Anyhow the retractable keychain now also holds my ID card and keycard for work. Nonetheless I've once experienced keychain failure when a weak ring ripped off, leaving my car keys under my car seat while the rest of my keys and sundries were on the chain--I replaced that with a better loop.

Of course my wife found then right away...

Buried in a chair... I swear I looked... apparently stuck down in the frame...

I could feel a bit dumber...

No, he used "moot" incorrectly.

Where his keys are remains a mootable point. . . .

Fuck his keys, who took my bike?!

You forgot to mention that they are near a body of water, they are afraid, but they know that Jesus loves them.
