MacBook Meets Smoothie

On Tuesday, I spilled a blueberry protein smoothie on my precious, expensive laptop. On Wednesday, it wouldn't turn on. On Thursday, I learned that the damage was limited to the keyboard (after thinking I might have to replace the whole machine.). Today, I will get it back after forking out $185. I feel like I dodged a sizable bullet. Lesson for the day: Smoothies and laptops don't mix;
Or, grown-ups need sippy cups, too.
