#1530: Keyboard Mash
[[A person walks toward their computer desk as the screen indicates “new chat message.”]]
[[The screen shows a text conversation (where lines are contained in speech bubble boxes) between White Hat Guy and the first person.]]
WHG: Can’t sleep. Stupid dogs keep barking.
FP: Ugh, I’m sorry. Maybe you could…
...OK, wait. I have to ask. How did you hit a "7" in the middle there?
I was just randomly keyboard mashing.
FP: Sorry, right.
FP: …I know this is silly, but like… all your hands were clearly on the home row.
I don't get how one finger could have stretched up to the "7."
WHG: Why do you always fixate on these bizarre details?
FG: I don’t know.
WHG: It’s weird, is all.
[[A giant spider dangles from the ceiling, typing at a laptop on a desk, while White Hat Guy is suspended upside down, wrapped in spider thread. The chair lies on the floor on its side. The conversation continues on the computer.]]
Spider:I am a normal human typing with my human hands.
FP: Yeah, of course.
