MOM: Do you want to know the code for the garage door?
ME: Only if you want me to have it.
MOM: Well, it my difficult to remember.
ME: What is it?
MOM: _ _ _ _
ME: What does that mean?
MOM: Before you daddy died, he came up with a password for all of our accounts. I still use it.
ME: _ _ _ _?
My brain starting churning. I thought of all the possible combinations related to birthdates.
ME: Dwight always used my birthday. In fact, after he moved in with Betty, he called to ask, “Is it okay that I just set up your birthday as my new password?”
MOM: I think your daddy just chose numbers.
ME: That doesn’t make sense. It makes sense to use the last four numbers of your phone number, or your address. . .
I looked at my keypad to see what the numbers could spell. Nothing.
Did my dad just randomly choose numbers that were easy to key in, or is there a mystery?
