Around here, people still leave their cars running when they go into the convenience store, and leave their keys in the ignition at home so they won’t forget where they left them. I probably shouldn’t admit it, but I have no idea where my house key is…haven’t used it in years. When we bought the place, it took the previous owner six months just to find it and bring it by. After living in places where literally anything not nailed down was considered ‘fair game’, it took some getting used to.  I finally disabled the ‘beep’ from my car’s lock, because people would look at me funny for locking the car at all.

The university where I teach is in a much dicier area, with frequent car and building break-ins, so I haven’t lost all caution, but it feels good to quit worrying at home.

Please don’t come over and steal my lithium!   (It’s the stuff on the materials shelf in the studio, marked ‘lithium.)   ;)
