I have a key to my front door that I keep in my pocket at all times. And I have a spare key in case I ever lose my main key. The problem is that I keep the spare key in my bedroom. So if I’m ever locked out of my house I would have to break in to get to the spare key. That kind of defeats the point of having the spare key. It’s like keeping an extra car key in the glove box. On one level it makes sense, and on the other level it’s fucking retarded. They should make backup spare keys so that you can get to your spare key in case you lose your main key. But then where would you keep your backup spare key? Probably right next to your spare key. On one level it makes sense…

Most people have keys. Most people keep those keys on a key ring. There’s a house key, a gate key, a car key, maybe an office key or a bike key…. And there’s always one extra key. It might be from an old apartment, or it might belong to a lock that you lost a long time ago. It might be a key to your ex’s place that you just keep for sentimental reasons. But there’s always one extra key on each key ring. It is a fundamental law of the universe. There’s only so many things you can do with an extra key: you can open use it for self defense as you make your way through a darkened parking lot, you can open a UPS package, or you can pick dirt from your fingernails. But you can’t get rid of it. You’ve had it for so long that your key ring will look weird without it.
