It’s dark. Your hands are full. You’re standing in front of your door. You’re fumbling for your keys in the very large purse you’ve been meaning to clean. You’re cursing under your breath because nobody bothered to turn an outdoor light on. You can’t see anything. You’re unaware if the neighborhood skunk is hiding in your bushes. You start breathing faster. Now you start moving things frivolously around in your purse. You just broke a damn manicured nail. You’re pissed. The thought of the skunk comes back in your head. A light finally opens in the house. Somebody is walking towards the door and you just found your keys! Does this happen much?
