[Fortunately, I anticipated this disaster scenario, and brought a second key. I still don't have any idea how or why that key got lost while I was getting gas.]
I keep a spare ignition key buried in my top box, and a spare top box key wrapped to a wiring harness with electrical tape. The wad of electrical tape hiding the spare top box key is pretty much invisible.

I don't have a bucket list, I have a post-bucket list. So far it includes
1) Coroner's report is to read "Death by misadventure."
2) Dixieland jazz band at my funeral.
