I'm doing it again. This keyboard, black with white letters, has held out longer than the previous models. But S is gone, and C, V, N, M, L, .. K is almost gone. You can see the wear on D and , starting to kick in. It's not such a thing for me. I touch-type. I only look at the keyboard to see which letters my fingers have eaten. But if anyone else in the house needs to use this computer for anything, we're swiftly approaching the point of total uselessness.

Why those letters? They're not the most frequently used in the English language; they're not disproportionately present in my name or things I type often like "the" and "and" and "dear" and "hey." I don't sit with my fingers resting on the bottom row of keys. I don't spill things on them and have to scrub them off again. I just don't know what the deal is here. I don't mind that my fingers eat the letters; I just want to know why these letters.
