_ancing _ummies an_ Other Wor_s

I was absolutely an_ utterly _ismaye_ the other _ay when I sat _own to write a post an_ _iscovere_ that my _ was missing.  It _i_; it just fell right off the laptop an_ skittere_ across the floor.

I foun_ it, picke_ it up, an_ trie_ to replace it on the laptop’s keyboar_.  No luck.  I trie_ to glue it.  Also no luck.  Leaving it sit there, unattache_, as a place hol_er, just felt weir_.

I wante_ a new laptop, but who has that kin_ of money just sitting aroun_ the house un-earmarke_ for something, right?  So after some serious consi_eration an_ contemplation, I trucke_ my happy butt _own to the nearest Ra_io Shack, where I bought myself an external keyboar_.  It’s one of those that plugs in with a USB cable.

I was trying to explain to the guy that as a writer, I nee_ my ‘_’.  He _i_n’t care if I like to write.  It was obvious in his expression, the way his eyes glaze_ over, an_ in his suggestion that I just not use it.

I tol_ him I’_ alrea_y trie_ that an_ it _i_n’t work.

Ten _ollars.

But now I can write.

    We do not have that kinda money lyin around the house, either. We are sharing my laptop until the GI Bill kicks in. Sharing is better than the lack of D.
