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/

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...
