Digital Mouse Karma

Once upon a time, I helped two mice escape this dreary world. Permanently.

Apparently they didn’t appreciate my help. One (or both) of them have taken up ghostly residence in my computer mouse at work.

It’s just a regular two-button mouse, nothing fancy. Lately, though, it’s developed the ability to click where it isn’t, almost as though it is, but isn’t really here… cue spooky music.

Here………………………………………………………………………………………………….my mouse pointer is over here.

Restarting the computer works every time, thankfully. Mice must not have much afterlife power. That, or “just turn it off and on again” is good advice on both sides of death.

Maybe if I leave some cheese on my mouse pad tonight…
