There is a silverfish in my keyboard. Don’t ask me how it got there or what it likes about its new hangout. It’s just sitting between the bottom plastic and the top transparent plastic in between the main bank of keys and the section with help, delete, home, end, etc. I don’t even know if it’s alive or dead. The bugger of it is that I don’t know how to get it out without royally frelling up my keyboard, and if I leave it alone and then find it gone, it’s in prime real estate for access to lots of my yummiest important papers. And if it’s dead, that’s just gross. I do not want to be typing on a sacred silverfish dying ground. Suggestions are welcome. For now, I’m just going to try to relax the disgusted curl out of my lip and keep on with life as usual….

  1. Try using a piece of paper to prod it. If it’s alive it will move and maybe you can then upturn the keyboard and shake it out. Otherwise, try to find a dustbuster or even smaller vacuum and suck it out of there… Just a thought.

  2. Well, it was alive. It’s out now and quite dead. I ended up blowing into the keyboard to make it move around and sort of herd it (worse than cats, let me tell you) down to the bottom, where it crawled under the arrow keys and wiggled out at the confluence of up, down, and left. a few seconds later, it was all over. I bet it was thinking, “Oh boy, I found the way back out! Yay m–” ((squish))

    Life goes on. If you’re not a silverfish.
