I'm Yo' Hooker...

I was challenged to showcase a special talent on video. A bunch of bloggers have had fun with this, but I don't really have video...or any talent I share in public other than the obvious. So yes, I'm your hooker. That's a song right? Get your mind out of the gutter!
You know we've had a lot of crime around here lately...My car was robbed along with everyone on the block. Someone got jacked for their purse at the grocery store I shop at and the 7-Eleven I pass everyday was recently robbed too...So I started locking my car. I've never been a fan of this. I think it's better to keep nothing in there I can't afford to lose. When it's supposed to be hot as Hades out I crack my car windows so I can breathe when I get back in (you know where this is headed don't you.)
I looked for my keys and they were missing. I visited the project rooms I worked in that day and was laughed at by a co-worker. When I figured they were in the car I went out and sadly stared at my purse on the front seat.
I tried a dry stick, a fresh tree, called up to have dude's giggling, commuting tail bring me a coat hanger and pulled in help from security. (I knew he'd have a coat hanger you see, because while we may be casual all summer, he wears a sports coat daily.) Anyhoo, the men seemed to like the idea of coming to my rescue but had bad luck too. It was like a carnival game with all trying their luck...Security guy ran off to see what he could find. He returned with a skinny metal hook think and tried to hit the unlock button. When that failed he returned to the stick...I grabbed the hook, fished up my purse and heard my co-worker laugh as he pointed out that I'd get the purse, but have no way to get the keys. He was wrong. I got the purse and held it up while I unzipped it, pulled the top portion out of the window and tipped it up so I could get my keys...Yay me! I think my talent is always knowing there's more than one way to skin a cat!
