A few days ago I wrote about our budding Picasso scribbling on the TV screen. I was at the time very relieved that she hadn’t gotten to Wintermute, my laptop.
Coming home last night, that little piece of relief was shattered. I now have crayon marks on my laptop screen. Argh. It’s only one stroke, but it’s there. Am now experiencing intense fear at attempting to remove said crayon stroke. Can’t use Windex, as it’ll do Bad Things to the LCD. Am afraid of using something without ammonia or alcohol, as it may just make the crayon streak over the screen. I’d much rather have a discrete crayon stroke than a big green smudge over a part of the screen. Alas, poor Wintermute…
