The term "Lost" can be interpreted in many ways. It can mean hidden, out of sight, misplaced, unobtainable or even taken without consent. I have a 5 year old and all of the possibilities aforementioned could possibly qualify. I own an Alfa 156 sportswagon and have done happily for the last 3 years or so. It is a mutually beneficial relationship. I look after her and she looks after me. A few weeks ago I was looking for my key of which I only have one. I wanted to have two but fortune escaped me. It is always put in the same spot but on this occasion was found missing. Fortunately we have another car so it was not of immediate concern. However as the hours wandered by and no key presented itself it became a slightly more pressing problem. The house was overturned with clothing being assaulted and furniture upturned. Toy boxes were investigated as were bags and baskets. Nothing! New schedules were invented and family (other) were beginning to avoid phone calls and appeals for lifts went unheeded. I haven't yet got to the begging stage yet but I feel time is the only obstacle to this. What do I do now. I throw myself upon the forum for help and perhaps a little solace. I didn't lock the car so at least I can sit in her and pretend I can still drive. Sad really.
