Don't try this at home.

In an ongoing effort to provide optimum care and maintenance for our expensive electronics, on Tuesday morning Sam decided to bathe his Apple keyboard and wireless mouse with a cup of hot coffee. It didn’t take us long to figure out these devices were either highly allergic to caffeine or dry-clean only, since both were rendered completely useless within five minutes, leaving Sam with nothing else to do but watch “People’s Court” reruns with a bagel. (I was busy doing other things.)
But being a swell and devoted wife, tonight while Sam was at work I ordered a new keyboard and mouse for him from Fry’s Electronics in Garland for store pickup later today after 9 a.m. It’s not likely Sam will get there anytime before noon, however, because he’s still at the office (it’s already after 1 a.m.) and probably won’t get home until sun-up. I’ll leave a light on in the hall.

Incidentally, please let me know if anybody’s interested in contributing to the Howdygram’s new fundraiser: NOSE PLUGS FOR AUSTRALIA. I don’t know where all that damn flood water is coming from, but if the photos I’ve seen are any indication apparently the entire eastern half of the country is now beachfront property (even in the mountains) ... and nose plugs are probably Australia’s #1 need aside from a lot of paper towels.
