Keyboard Test

So Jane (my daughter) is checking out my laptop to see if the keyboard is good enough and so she starts typing the following:

The end o...

I say, "Stop!"

She says, "What?"

I ask, "Are you going to write The end of the world as we know it?"

She looks at me and says, "Yes, how did you know?"

"Because that's what I write when I am testing a keyboard..."

So we both use the exact same sentence to test out keyboards. How? Not because either of us has seen the other do it. Not because we can mind read or have the same depressing thoughts. No Jane reckons its because I sing it too much -

Its the end of the world as we know it - but I feel fine.

I always liked that lyric. It always seemed the truth about so many situations. However bad they were I was ok.

And however much I thought I could do maybe I wasn't doing enough if so much was going wrong with the world and I could still be feeling fine.

So to me the lyric is both a comfort and a wake up call.

What do you write to test a keyboard?
