Tip #1: Puke and Keyboards

Helpful Tip #1: After your baby vomits in the family room, do not leave a roll of paper towels stored on top of your monitor unless you want it to fall off Saturday night, spilling a glass of soda into the nooks and crannies of your keyboard. Also forget about rinsing the keyboard, drying it by hand and reassembling the pieces because the keyboard will at first seem fixed and then stop working, leaving you to browse web bookmarks and read, but not reply to, e-mail. Save yourself the misery and buy an $11 replacement keyboard at K-Mart because K-Mart will be open at 8 a.m. on a Sunday.

    Is this a theoretical scenario, perchance? (innocently batting eyelashes)

    If one enjoys challenges, the keyboard reassembly can take place in the presence of the baby.

    On the upside, old keyboards make for entertaining toys. (Especially combined with defunct monitors.)
