Elaine from high school
had been in Hong Kong
until a few days ago, and I offered to take her out to lunch

McDonald's was too far from where she worked to meet me at, so we settled on one about halfway

to make sure she didn't leave them on the counter...no dice. I peek in through the window
to see if the keys were left on the seat. Guess where they were?
In the ignition
The car was still on.
