Could well be a Flax Lily
blooming in the billabongs of Australia, but here in Kentucky some
people are again having trouble with their keyboard. It's not so much
the fade of letters, the absence of an escape button, rather it is a key
which gets stuck and proceeds to fill the screen with the happy vowel.
Fun for a moment or two, while eeee's leap from the cliff and would
continue to do so on into perpetuity or electrical error.
There was a time when turning the
keyboard upside down and giving it a jolly good what for, cured all.
But lately, an increasingly vigorous shaking has failed to produce obedience
in "e", so I wondered what else I could try. And here it's useful to
know that while a sleepy Ladybird is able to hold fast during earthquake,
she'll quickly surrender to the nozzle of a vacuum cleaner. More interesting
though is why she chose "e" to embrace when there are so many unexplored
keys off to the right.
