Okay, so I already feel conspicuous being the only individual in my poli-sci class who uses a computer to take notes. Everyone else is making a “scratchity-scratchity” sound with their pencils while I make a “tappity-tappity” noise with my keyboard.
Suddenly, my “tappity-tappity” turns into a “tappity-clink-whoosh-ping-ping-ping…”
Are you wondering what happened?
My PowerBook has gotten more use during the 2 1/2 years I’ve owned it than a typical computer gets in about 4 or 5 years. Therefore it is falling apart. Literally. That “clink-whoosh-ping-ping-ping” sound I just described earlier was my “J” key becoming dislodged in mid-type, shooting into the air, and pinging across my tesk. I managed to grab it in mid-air before it hit the ground, but the damage was done. People saw. And they smirked.
And I turned red.
I could kill the stupid “J” key! I thought about replacing all words that start with “J,” but then I realized that I could no longer spell “Jesus,” “jungle,” or “Jell-O.” I realized that I like all those things so much that I couldn’t possible go on a J-key fast. Oh well…
