Not Like Today

One thing I’ve learned to never count on is that life  tomorrow will be  just like it is today     For example, we’re supposed to be at the airport early in the morning.  However that’s not the way it worked out.
Someone had misplaced the keys, they were not to be found anywhere. No problem; I’d walk a half a mile and pick up an extra pair
But what  I learned about rental places is that they have one set of keys – that’s it.  They said it was okay for me to hire my own locksmith and pay for it myself.  I never did figure out how they kept their cars secure.  Finally I just said that it was none of my business and got home two days later than I planned.
