Golden Key — You’ve been given a key that can open one building, room, locker, or box to which you don’t normally have access. How do you use it, and why?

A golden key. Solid gold? Can I sell it?

I can’t think of any place on the real earth I want to go that I cannot access. If it’s the key to memory, I’ll skip it thanks. I remember quite enough.

Key to a vault? A vault full of money? Whose money? I’m sure it isn’t mine, so I’m not clear on what good it would do me. Are you suggesting I start a life of crime?

At my age? I don’t think I have the nerves for it. I’m pretty sure I never did. Besides, my luck being what it is, I’d be the one person to be given “a golden key”, go grab a few goodies … and the FBI will be waiting when I exit the vault with my ill (but easily gotten) gains. The very definition of easy-come-easy-go.

Tell you what. I’ll keep the key as a memento. Put it on a golden chain (maybe I can find a nice one on sale) and wear it in remembrance.

I’ll think of it as my blogging prize, okay?

  2. I actually have a friend who wears a nice necklace with an ancient silvered key. It’s a good idea. Looks great on her.

  5. If it can open any door to any room it is magical. Maybe ‘magical’ comes with a clause that gives you immunity from prosecution, and in fact, grants you expanded privilege. I would plead ‘magical’ in court.

  6. Very true. If you don’t normally have access then chances are you’re not supposed to have access so the key will need to open 2 doors. The first one gets you stuck in jail and the second unlocks your cell door.

  7. But a contact with the FBI would be great. I could tell everyone I know a female American gangster who has met all those nice looking filmstar lookalike guys from the FBI. We could write letters and I would really try to visit you. That would be an interesting experience. I can see the headlines in the newspaper. “Local girl visits colleague in Alcatraz (or wherever) arrested by Clarice Starling.”
