    My Inova X1 fell behind my bedside table, so I used my Nitecore Thumb to light it up.

    The code dials on my bicycle lock. I could have used the bike light, but that was already mounted on the handlebars.

    Under the seat at Dunkin' Donuts. Someone called the counter staff and asked if anyone found a cell phone and indicated the seat I was sitting at. No cell phone but found a $20 bill!!

    The path from my front door to my car early yesterday morning. I thought I had dropped a glove there so I used my handy little Streamlight to look for it. Luckily, it had fallen down between the edge of the back seat and the door. I was afraid I'd dropped it in my house and would come home to find one very nice glove shredded by the dogs.

    Under the bed last night to fetch my tablet. Used my Gear S2 (newest EDC) torch app.

    The mens room at work. I work in a builiding with handicapped and geriatric folks, and at quitin time, i had to jump in for 'the long stay'. A client went in ,used a urinal, washed up, hit the lights and left. I was stuck in a stall in the pitch dark. Until the 47s Mini HA on my keys saved me from having to call for help...

    Last weekthe weather service called for a high wind advisory. I was at my Dads house in Dearborn,MI when the light flickered. I grabbed my keys that have a Fenix E05 on them and sure enough, the power went out. I used it to get a 2C Mag with an LED drop in for him and then dug up an Energizer 4D folding LED lantern we keep at his house for such occasions. Luckily I had bought a few Energizer 50 lumen 2AA lanterns the day after Thanksgiving and used one as a nightlight in the kitchen. Power was out for about 3 1/2 hours and then it came back.
    I never noticed before but the low setting on the 4D lantern doesn't seem much dimmer than the high.

    Today: front left brake on the Silverado so could inspect for a noise.

    Last night: many dark corners of the high school while chaperoning a dance. I love my 47s Quick Click.

    To light up a short cut through the woods on the way from the football stadium to the car park. Dozens of people use it and hardly any of them have a light.

    I used my light to light up a suspicious car that was slowly driving up and down my dead end street.

    I just used my streamlight protac to make sure that my fifth wheel hitch jaws were completely engaged before I tried to set the lock. For some reason the light started to act weird, started changing modes and turning itself off all of a sudden. Going to put some new batteries in it and see if it works better otherwise I might need to see what they can do for me

    Walking through the house at last night. I always have a light with me. I prefer it to turning the lights on and off as I move from room to room, floor to floor.
