I don’t know why it took me so long to realise these two things:
1. My keys are bulky and heavy to carry – but that’s because of the car key, which is bigger than everything else.
In fact a car key is a bit like the car itself in a busy city – it’s impractically large for what it usually does.
2. I don’t usually need to carry my car key, because I don’t usually drive.
Do I need a car at all? For now, probably yes. That’s a topic for another day.
