The other day my wife asked me if I used a mouse pad, and if I didn’t have one if I could use one. I told her that for the most part my mice are laser, so I didn’t need one. I did tell her that the little one could use one, and it wouldn’t hurt to have one around for when one is needed.
She then told me that she wasn’t going to spend money on custom mouse pads for them to sit on a shelf, or in a box. I told her that I would use one, but I have learned for the most part that a mouse pad is usually a sponge for spilled coffee, tea, and other drinks.
She understood, and she said that she would consider getting me one for my laptop case for when I take my laptop on the road.
