spacebar{not}working

yesterday…silas…spilled…water…on…my…laptop.

it…turned…itself…off…in…protest.

nestling…it…in…a…bed…of…jasmine…rice…all…night…at…first…didn’t…seem…to…help.

this…morning…i…was…in…the…depths…of…despair.

randomly…throughout…the…day…i…pushed…that…little…power…button.

willing…it…to…turn…on.

joy…of…joys!

it…works!

all…except…the…spacebar…and…the…left…shift…key.

thinking…i…could…google…the…problem…for…a…solution…

i…realized…it’s…difficult…to…search…without…spaces…

apparently…i’m…not…the…only…one…who’s…tried…

now…THAT’S…funny!!

  2. Dustin says:

    That’s hilarious!
    (hope you get it fixed!)

    1. Melissa says:

      Yeah! Got it fixed today. :)

    That’s so sad, but so funny, Melissa! Sorry for your loss. :)

    1. Melissa says:

      God resurrected my computer! :) I was thinking I was going to have to buy a new one.

  4. I…am…not…a…cook…so…what…in…the…world…is…jasmine…rice??? Oops only needed on ? mark. Is what happened sort of like dropping a phone in the toilet? Sorry for your loss. (Sounds like a sympathy card). Hope…it…turns…back…on…and…starts…working…again. Or you can take it out of his allowance for the next 16 years and buy a new one. :)

      Jasmine rice is our favorite rice. It’s pretty much all we buy. It’s a sticky white rice that has this fragrant, nutty smell. It’s fantabulous in stir-fry. :)

  5. Daggone. That stinks.

    I……like….you…..

    you….. are ….. hilarious…..and …. have…..a …… great…..sense…..of…..humor…..

    Boy, that’s hard to do. LOL.

    You can get it replaced for about $80-$100. or just type….. like….this…..forever…..

    1. Melissa says:

      Thanks…

      It only cost me $100, which was much better than the $1600 I thought I’d have to spend on a new computer. Haha! :)

    I….like…the….periods….
    There…is….something….so…e.e…cummings….about….it
    Or…maybe…its….more…morse…code…reminiscent
    Hope…you…can…get…it…fixed…soon

    1. Melissa says:

      Ha! Morse code. :) And yeah, it’s fixed.

      Funny story, when I took it in the “genius” asked me if I was aware of the significant water damage (this was after he had replaced the top case, so he’d opened it up). I told a small white lie, and said, “No. Really?” Haha! Then he said, “Well, someone knew about it because the inside of the computer was full of rice.”

      Hahahahahahah!! I was totally caught. :)

  8. Tony Alicea says:

    This makes you look hip and cool. Like a Rob Bell paragraph. Hope you get it fixed! :)

    1. Melissa says:

      Does that mean this was a controversial post? Should I put out a video promo for my new book “No Spaces”…hahah! I’m Melissa Brotherton, and I don’t believe in spacebars.

  9. Craig says:

    Melissa – I prefer dashes – you don’t have to type three of them – and it’s right up there conveniently by the “P” – I know you said you were worried – but this all sounds like you’re taking it in stride – either way – hope it get’s better. God Bless.

    1. Melissa says:

      Thanks, Craig! :) I like dashes too, but it was overwhelming between every word. Ha! Luckily, the problem is now solved.
