    hi/
    / = period
    key broken, key dead/

    The period key is dead/ Long live the period key/
    The key is lower than the other keys and when you hit it--nada, zilchy/
    try writing without a period/ took it for granted didnt you?
    Iam a writer---maybe i over used the period key/ one too many slams on the key/ shame shame/ should i appoligizzze?

    Could there be something stuck underneath it? Have you tried attacking it with some compressed air? Maybe just write everything as a question from now on? Okay? :p

    You can pop off the plastic part of the key to try to investigate the problem...
