beginning the day down the highway blue sky, as evergreen pillars sway both side, light filters though our way beautiful drive through winding expressway both my girlfriend and I play, beaming, shopping an hour away busting at the seams, a fun day buzzing, park my car to spend a full day bumping against people that pass by both walking a honeycomb of displays buying clothes and dining in the nearest Cafe both tired, we were ready for the highway bundles in hands, I was in dismay beginning to panic, how can my brain betray blank of thought, forgot where the car may be. I don’t have a fancy remote or x-ray. blast! I sigh! to set off my car blazing alarm and locate it at bay blind, I know it can’t be far, I pray ~ I’m tired of losing my white car wandering up and down trying my key to see which door it will open. I must look like a clown a skill I still have not mastered nightmares do still haunt me looking, but never there, stranded has it been towed without me? 1/24/2022 True story. One day after a long shopping day in the big city. I tried my key in four different cars because they all look the same; my friend just laughed at me.

This reminds me of a story about my daughter and three friends. They went to mall. Got back to car. Opened it with key. Sat down inside. Key would not turn ignition. Looked around. It was a clean car - not hers. They got back out. Found her own car two doors down.

Hello Eve, I have seen many people forgetting where they park their car. Many people have this problem. Hugs.

Eve, I've had similar experiences. I suspect we all have. We laugh about them, but at the time we're frustrated, angry, and terribly inconvenienced. There should be a solution to this problem without having to press the panic button!

Hello Milton, I have not had the problem in years. If I think I am going to have the problem I look around to look where I left it. I truly had nightmares.

So glad this nightmare has never happened to me, I love the way each line began with b at the start of the poem and also the use of rhyme, this was so clever, hugs jan xx

Hello girl, sure need to see you more often. Yes, the memory has a way to make us stupid. :)

I can understand the panic when you can't locate your car. Normally no one tows a car when there are people in it. Hugs.
