The Law of Keys

When one has a limited, non-negotiable amount of time to complete a task outside of the home (i.e., errand), keys will disapparate. They will not be in one's usual "key place," nor will they be in one's purse, pockets, man bag, or fanny pack. They will not be near one's wallet, in the cushions, hooked on the diaper bag, or near yesterday's mail. They will have vanished. When one realizes and accepts that one no longer has time to accomplish said task, the keys will apparate in a perfectly logical place. This will require many expletives (silly ones if children are present).
