THE KEY TO IT ALL
I just find this picture so amazing. I've been noticing it for about a couple of weeks let's say, and each time it just knocks me out. Study it closely.
It's a picture of my computer keyboard. Notice anything weird about it? Think maybe it's time I should buy a new one?? Well... maybe YOU would need a new one but ME?? Apparently not. I don't have to since I NEVER look at my keyboard as I'm typing. Instead, my eyes are always on the monitor as I merrily go along pressing each needed key. But seriously, is this NORMAL??
Does EVERYone have HALF THEIR LETTERS TOTALLY MISSING?? Something tells me it's just me, right? Can you believe it??? I find this simply hilarious. Besides, I guess it's a good way to keep others away from even using my computer when I don't want them to. Without any letters they probably won't even know what the hell they're typing in the first place. Thanks to Mr. Napoli's typing class in high school however, I do.
So as best I can tell... I no longer have an E, R, A, S and L. Plus... check out the W, I, O, D, F, G, H, V, B and N. They too, don't have much time left in this world. What the hell do I DO to these letters, anyway?? I have never seen anyone else have THEIR keyboard disappear right before their very eyes. What's the deal with ME? I have freaky fingers or something? Besides, my fingers never even touch the keyboard... I TYPE WITH THE TIPS OF MY NAILS.
The funny thing is... I've never yet even thought to replace this keyboard. I never even SAW the missing letters until two weeks ago. Like how long has this been going ON anyway?? I can't even imagine how long it's going to take for all the other letters to disappear altogether, but you can bet your bottom dollar, I'm sure going to be on the look out from here on in. Typing without any letters whatsoever? Now THAT'S gotta be interesting, alright.
Speaking of keys, did you ever see an accountant type all the numbers on the right hand side of a keyboard? WITHOUT ONCE LOOKING?? To me that is one of THE most amazing talents ever. My accountant NEVER looks as he's keying in numbers and I find it sorta frightening, actually. Like how does HE know whether or not he's made a mistake on my tax returns?? His eyes are planted right smack onto a sheet of paper and his fingers are flying a mile a minute thus he has no way of cross checking, if you ask me. Well, unless all of a sudden I happen to be due a refund in the hundreds of thousands of dollars. In which case, I should only be so lucky.
In the meantime, I have no clue when I'll have to eventually break down and buy a new keyboard. I am kind of fascinated actually to see just how long it's going to take for me to eventually have a completely blank keyboard. I'm like having a silent little bet with myself. Three months?? 9 months? Never?? Maybe by then I'll even have my new Mac computer anyway, which btw is the only computer my kid says I should buy. And even then I'm not so sure that after more than almost two decades with Microsoft, I CAN break away.
Talk about separation anxiety.
