The man with the key is
never locked out, or locked in. He keeps all his options open; everything is on
the table. When the music stops, he always finds a seat. Not only does he have
a plan b, he has a plan c, and a plan d. He prepares himself for any event
without weighing himself down needlessly. By keeping hold of the key, he keeps
hold of the situation and does not let the situation get a hold on him.
