There he is, my snapping turtle helper. Snapper had lived on my dashboard for ten or more years, but my new Honda Fit has such a deep dashboard that I couldn't reach him from behind the wheel, and so I got a new turtle to live there and this guy lives on the passenger seat next to me. Whenever I have my lights on during the day, or when I'm about to run out of gas, I put him in my lap. As yesterday proved, that was not an infallible reminder, not sufficiently idiot-proof for this idiot, and I thought I'd have to stick him in my waistband from now on when I need the reminder. But he fits right into my purse perfectly.
Oh, by the way, I had to pay $20 for a non-electronic door key (it's $75 for the electronic key) to put in my wallet because I can't tell you how many times I have locked my keys in a car by pushing down that door-lock button and slamming the door shut, just as I'm thinking, Ummm, do I have my keys? On my last car I was able to duct tape a plastic AAA door key to the back of my license plate, but on my new car I can't get my hand behind the plates. It is imperative that I keep my purse around my body at all times, bandolier-style, so I don't lock the keys in the ignition in a running car, leaving my purse on the seat---with the extra key in it---as I shut and accidentally lock the door.
Snapper likes it in my purse. I can tell.
