The keyboard sighed as it's person started banging away on it again.

It wasn't bad enough that she has already sent the wrong information to
Shadowland's Majiknet, but her corrected version was still full of errors.
and naturally, she had to take her frustrations out on the keyboard.

The keyboard wished she would get a datajack so he could retire, and not
have her temper ending up giving him black and blue keys. At least upgrade
to the new Novatech interface that can take a troll's punishment...

But no.... once she had something technological, it didn't get upgraded
until it broke. But the neat little fringy things, there was a new one
every week, at the least. Was he a bit jealous? Hell yeah. She treated
those with care and respect, and beat the crap out of him on a regular basis.

Prairie Dog Totem, his cord.

I never said it had to be long. ;)
Replies off list, please.
