Yesterday I made the mistake of locking myself out of my house. We had switched the door knobs on the house and it hadn't occurred to me that I would need a new key before I locked the door. So after several minutes of trying to pick the lock with a bobby pin I realized that I was going to have to find an alternative entryway. Apparently my pick locking skills have gotten a little rusty. So I walked around the house looking for a window that may have been left unlocked.
