Mama Deb


I spilled coffee on my keyboard Friday afternoon.

The keyboard that came with the new Dell computer - as plain vanilla as a black keyboard cane be. Nice small footprint, too. So, it was upsetting.

I bought a new one today - simplest one I could find at the local Staples. I wanted the Logitech for $12, but it was gone, so I got a somewhat fancier and more expensive one that at least had a cord. Didn't want to spend for a cordless.

Yeah, we're cheap, but also? Not really using the keyboard for anything but the basics anyway.

So. I'm using the old one still. Some of the keys were sticky at first use but otherwise, I haven't had a problem with it.

So. Has nothing we don't use. Has a small footprint without losing functionality. Is impervious to coffee.
