With almost everything being done on computers nowadays, I often worry about the good folks at the White-Out factory (I really do, I worry about some really strange shit). I’m sure there’s had to be some belt-tightening around White-Out, Inc., but I’m here to tell you — it’s still a very valuable product!
Case in point:
Even though I write for a living, I am not what you’d call a “good” typist. I type fast, but I only use 2 fingers and the occasional thumb, and I MUST MUST MUST look at the keys. So when the “N” and the “M” wore off the keyboard at work, I was in a pickle. And I got tired of writing scripts about people getting arrested for selling “marcotics” or being on trial for “nurder.” Enter: White-Out.
Also, I remain childishly fascinated by that White-Out Correction Tape stuff — I always have to put my finger on it and be amazed that it’s instantly dry. Plus, it makes an excellent scuff-and-nail-hole cover-upper if your landlord is not too observant and you’re too cheap to buy spackle. Toothpaste also works, but only the white kind.
Unless your paint color is Minty Fresh, I guess…
