Default Pulling 1/2 full keg out of fridge

I think I already know the answer. Need to make sure.

Problem is my fridge will only hold 2 cornies. We have my beer and swmbo's beer kegged up in there.
We now have the aplefein ready to keg. What will happen if we pull her keg out and set aside at room temp?

I am thinking it will get skunked. I am hoping I am wrong. What does everyone here think.

Thanks and Cheers

It will be fine. I have done it quite a few times.

Skunking will only happen if there is light exposure. Not a worry with a keg.

If you pull it out, don't touch it, and then put it back to the same temp in the fridge later (letting it sit for a while), it will even have the same carbonation. No worries.
