IZZE RUINED MY KEYBOARD
Last night I had a bottle of IZZE. It’s a combination of fruit juice and sparkling water. It’s my NEW favorite drink. But it’s expensive, so when I have one, it’s a real TREAT. Unfortunately, I accidently knocked the bottle over and spilled it. It poured out all over my computer keyboard. What a mess. Not knowing what to do… I flipped my keyboard upside down and let it drain. All night long. I figured it would be good to go in the morning. So I slept in and forgot about it. Later in the day, I cleaned up the damage. Everything seemed to be functioning until I tried to use my space bar. It kept sticking. Then it STOPPED working altogether. Wouldn’t budge. This frustrated me. Not only had I lost the cost of the IZZE, but now I needed to BUY a NEW keyboard. This was an added expense, we didn’t need. It snowed today and I made a decision not to drive in it. So the keyboard would have to wait until Monday or sometime later in the week. There would be no commenting on blogs or new blog posts from me, today. I was really mad at myself for being so clumsy. I began moping around the house since I couldn’t be online. But my hubby quickly came to my rescue, when he heard the problem. He went into his office and brought out a BRAND NEW keyboard, still in the box. It apparently had come with a NEW computer he had gotten a while back. At the time, he kept using his old keyboard with it because he didn’t like this one. LUCKY for me, he didn’t throw it away, or donate it. I LOVE this NEW keyboard. The buttons are recessed into the board, flushed with the surface. It’s more sleek and modern than the one that got drenched with IZZE. I LOVE it. Which goes to prove... ‘One man’s junk is another man’s treasure.’ And... gifts come from the most unexpected places. I wonder what else my husband has hidden in that office of his?
