I don’t normally offer advice here since I feel that I am a barely functioning adult on my best days, but this is an exception.
if you buy a new LED desk lamp because you are having trouble seeing things on your desk and
if you manage to plug in said lamp because your daughter has super-organized all the cords at your desk and you can’t figure out which cord goes to the old desk lamp that you are replacing and
if you turn on the new lamp and it shines brightly on the extreme amount of dust built up on the computer keyboard because you couldn’t see all of it in the dim light of the old lamp ( or maybe, honestly, I just managed to ignore it) and
if you try cleaning it with a paintbrush and
if big “stuff” starts falling out and
if you start wondering what all is underneath the keys…
do not under any circumstances attempt to visually inspect the keyboard any further because you will…
then pry up one of the keys and gasp and
then you will go get q-tips and
then you will spend an insane amount of time trying to clean the keyboard and
then you will be unable to properly put the space bar back on and
then your daughter will have to try to fix it and
then she will sigh loudly and start researching nursing homes again.
I’d advise either working in the dark, continuing to ignore the dust, or buying a new keyboard.
And now I am off to clean out the extra room so it can become purposeful and beautiful again. Wish me luck…
and by the way, now the right shift key doesn’t work. crap…
