Snappy Tom Knows

Dear Snappy, I can't seem to find my keys. When you lose something, how do you go about reclaiming it?

Sincerely, Lost Without You

Hello, Lost. Well, when I lose something, first thing I do is try to retrace my steps. This is always the hardest part of the process, because it means I have to walk backward for upwards of a day or two. And you try talking a bus driver into reversing their route through downtown Atlanta, ID! But, if the stars align in the heavens above, I'm like as not led back to the very spot where I left my missing belonging. After that, ain't nothing left but to celebrate with a handle of moonshine and a fistful of congealed bacon grease.
