Spilt Milk

A little so and so spilt milk on my keyboard, and now the letters “iop, hjkl,” and “mn” are no longer working.

Funny, huh? Thanks to spilt milk, I can’t even type, “spilt milk,” save for the s and the t.

I’d like to be angry and throw a huge mama fit, but I did the same thing a few months back, only it as wine, husband’s computer, and it fried the whole hard drive.

Squishy, warm, under the blankets little couch potato, drinking your milk in unaware bliss, you have no idea how lucky you are that your mama is a bigger clutz than you.

Going to try to get it fixed.

Going to try to post from husband’s computer in the interim.

Going to hope you’ll bear with me…

(p.s. The photo has nothing to do with anything at all, I just like it. Of course, if I’m going to stretch it, I could say that it looks all dark and gloomy which is how I feel about being without my computer. Or, I could note the flying bird and pretend it’s a mama bird, all in a tizzy, swearing under her breath, and on her way to the Apple Genius Bar…again. But that might be pushing it a little 🙂

That sucks! I hope you are able to get it fixed without trouble, because this is my inspirational blog and I miss it when I can’t get my daily dose! 🙂

yes, that is pushing it.
just kidding! Sorry about your keyboard.
I know that my keyboard is like an extension of my arm, so I am sorry.

I like interpretation #2 (mamma bird flying off to the Apple Genius Bar in a tizzy) I got a good chuckle out of that!

Props for keeping your cool and realizing that little boys sometimes make mistakes too.

Poor thing,They are so innocent.Most of the time I am in awe of their innocence,just occasionally,like when Ollie sits on my lap when I am typing and bangs the keys like he’s pounding camping peg in the ground,do I wish they know ,maybe the value of it.But then I remember that it is only a thing where as the person pounding it is a blessing (easy for me to say,I know,it’s not computer that is fried!!sorry,i am no help here!)
When I had been living with my husband for maybe six weeks,I spilt strong,rust your inards,British tea on his laptop.It was a goner.He just rolled his eyes at me and bit his tongue,newlyweds,ahhh.but just recently,I fell asleep on the couch and the macbook fell off my lap onto the floor,face side down! I didn’t get away with that so easily! I remember him wailing something about worse than the kids and British tea all over again!!My hubby then went out and bought a protective cover from the apple store.To save it from me,not the kids!!how’s that for klutz??
take care,good job keeping your cool :0)

hey baby – there is a clear soft plastic guard that fits over a regular keyboard to guard from spills – not sure if you have a laptop though. ;^) if you *do* have a laptop, you can plug in an auxiliary keyboard to get by. that’s what dh did when he dumped coffee on his!

Well that photo reminds me of YOUR artwork. : ) Which is lovely. So nice to be reflected in nature and then reflecting nature and then going round in an artful circle.

Anyway, something to think about while you’re waiting for your computer to get fixed.

Aw, dang, not again! I miss you when you’re gone! Hurry back! Tell those guys at the Genius Bar to be swift — your people are waiting!

Just liking it is a perfect reason for the photo.

Sorry about more computer woes!

And I’ve spilled too. It’s funny, how I shame my students into not eating or drinking by the keyboard, then I screw it all up myself. 🙂
