The Combination Lock

The Combination Lock

Postby dmac » Thu Aug 03, 2017 9:17 pm

Last summer, I bought a mountain bike. And a chain and lock. I hadn't used a combo lock since high school and, as my memory has turned to quicksand, I was leery of my ability to recall the numbers when necessary. But I kept the numbers on a slip of paper in my center desk drawer.

Sure enough, come fall, after I hadn't used the bike for a few weeks due to inclement weather, I'd managed to forget the com and lost the backup slip of paper.

II just found the slip of paper, and the penny finally dropped that the combination actually couldn't possibly be easier for me to remember.

Right zero
Left two
Right eight.


Honest, that's the combo.
