My keyboard at work is trying to tell me something.
Of all the white letters and numbers on black keys, the “V” and the “N” are the most worn.
In fact, the “V” is almost all gone, with just the top tip of the right arm still existent.
The “N” is worn through the middle, like it was slashed with a broad knife.
When I pondered this phenomenon, I blamed the word “Virginia.”
It is the state where I live and report from, after all, and I must have to type it a hundred times a week.
But then I observed something else.
I create a lot of new stories every day — a move that calls for CTRL-N.
And I apparently paste a lot of stuff, too — that command is CTRL-V.
But now I’m confused about why the letter “C” is perfectly intact — because before you paste something, you generally need to copy something (CTRL-C).
Perhaps it’ll be the next letter to go.
