Sleepwalking my way through life: Ctrl + Z



Ctrl + Z

I learned a lesson today.

After five hours working on my dissertation I had finished my five hundred words. It was easier to write than normal seeing as I knew Northern Lights much better than I knew Ruby in the Smoke, the only problem was my attention span decided to have a haircut today.

I had finished, the words gleaming in front of me in their near-perfectness and I had nothing else to do apart from pack up and head downstairs to do some ironing. The only thing stopping me was a song was playing on my CD player and I wanted to hear it out. To satisfy my fidgety hands I played about with my word document, pressing different buttons and checking the word count.

Then I held down the undo button.

Everything went away in a few flashes and I giggled inwardly at the idea of my essay retyping itself before my eyes. So stretched my fingers and pressed Ctrl and Y.

A "Y" appeared on the screen.

I looked down to the keyboard and to the fingers that were pressing down shift and Y.

"FUCK."

The undo button is not for whimsical use, it has to be respected above (most) other buttons. It may be the greatest creation of mankind, but it needs to be treated with reverence.

Here endeth the lesson.
