Cautionary laptop tales

Don't eat things with seeds when you're using a laptop. The sesame seeds on the Dr Kargs onion seeded cracker I had with soup fit perfectly under the spacebar of my Tosh causing me to type verylongrunonphraseslikethis even when I'm banging on the spacebar as normal.

When you notice the seed/crumb/other small obstruction, turn your laptop over and shake it, or blow into the keyboard or use a keyboard vaccum. Do not, in an attempt not to dislodge the cat, put your mouth close to the spacebar and suck it out because it will hit the back of your throat at high speed and cause a coughing fit (which will make the cat go away anyway).

cough cough...
