I had a little bit of a surreal moment just now.
I was leaving a quick comment on a blog and must have accidently hit the right combination of keys to turn my keyboard to polytonic Greek characters (I think I need to cut my finger nails, or put on my glasses, or both).
At first I thought my comment looked odd.
Then I recognised the symbols.
Then I deleted the characters and tried again - it was still wrong.
Then I couldn't work out how I'd done it.
Then I had to go digging through my study books to find my list of instructions of how to undo it because I haven't had the need to type out any Greek words for a while.
Swift Jan doesn't know how lucky she is that my ancient Greek textbook was not as buried as I had thought it would be. And that I decided not to leave the gobbledegook there as proof that I am certifiable.
Chance that I could have altered the keyboard without my cheat sheet if I had intended to do it?
... Approximately None.
