Default Why is this happening to my Honda Civic?

I've had the car new since '97. Now for the first time ever when I try to start it I have to put it in neutral instead of 1st gear like I usually do. Not all the time mind you, just now and then. Could this just be the key wearing out? It's the only key I have. I lost the other one. I guess the easiest thing to do would just buy another key. I was just wondering if this could be a sign of something more serious.

The neutral safety switch is going/has gone bad. Not that big of a deal really but it is an easy fix. I would maybe try to get one from a junk yard. (I would bet it is a high mileage car. Am I right?)
