Ode to a Sticky D Key

I have a sticky D key

On my laptop

So if I'm missing d's

It's just a type flop


  • dusk arising

    d's are a few of my favourite things.

      That's cute............ I never gave them a second thought until they went away......

      I used to work in computing and I had a ‘phone call from one of the staff asking me to come and sort out her computer. She had split a Cuppa Soup over her keyboard!


      • Lorna

        Well I'm sure you rescued her! The IT boys were my best friends at work for when the computer "stopped" and everyone was crying for the work to be done........ especially since I wasn't "born" to this techie stuff........

          Please find that ‘d’
          ‘my little chickadee’.

          I couldn’t resist writing this comment.

          The first thing that popped in my head when I read your ode was the rhyming of
          ‘d’ with ‘chickadee’.
          It reminded me of Mae West and W.C. Fields in that great movie “My Little Chickadee”

          “...My pretty little chickadee
          Everything is gonna be all right
          Yes it will, yes it will now...”

          ...so please find that ‘d’!

          Today I’m going to download the movie and watch it. I need a good laugh on this particular day.

            So today you'll go up and see her sometime.............? He made the best Mr. Micawber.........

            • Laura

              Yes, up the stairs...
              to the second floor...
              to the tv room.

              Ah Mr. Micawber...
              another blast from the past.

                They wanted $100 US to fix it and send the computer away for 3 weeks so I just stuck it on with glue.......... good thing I'm not at work any more............ enjoy your day!

                This music your posting lately brings back so many memories.
                Nice one

                • Lorna

                  I love all kinds of music but the oldies are my favorites exactly because of the memories.... it's like a movie camera!

                  All the 'Ds' have been used up in the past tense of infinitives.We could get them back by only speaking in the present tense like football commentators.

                  • Lorna

                    I never thought of it that way......... IBM and Apple are going to have a problem...........

                    lol, if this wasn't written by someone with your subtle touch for razor sharp witty humour, it would need to be age restricted material,
                    great fun

                    • Lorna

                      oh the images...... the awful images........
