An Open Letter To My Computer Keyboard

by Amy Lindorff

Dear Keyboard,

Why does it always take me at least ten full seconds to locate the dollar sign? Are you hiding it on purpose? Do I think that it is a higher number than four and then think, no it’s lower, and skip right over four altogether? Does it actually move around? Am I crazy? (I know the answer is, to quote T-Bone from Arrested Development “Oh, most definitely,” but I mean specifically with regard to this issue.) Is this a common problem that people have or am I the only one? Do you get pleasure and entertainment out of watching me hunt for it every damn time? Can we strike some sort of mutually beneficial bargain to solve this problem?

Love, Amy
