Apple Puck Mice + Keybaord Coat Hanger

Who even liked those mice?

For whatever reason, Apple shipped all of it’s colored computers with these horrendous round mice. You couldn’t rest your hand on them and you couldn’t tell by feel which way was up. Sure you say, ‘but they were cute’. You obviously never used one.

I ended up being the owner of two bondi blue puck mice and a matching blue keyboard. One day the mice started looking like the knobs on a coat hanger I’d seen, and I decided to investigate. A few days later and I had a gorgeous coat rack for my dingy crusty workroom.
