The other day, I overheard an older relative refer to the act of copying and pasting something as “storing it in the mouse.” I had never thought of it that way before, but that is probably how it appears to new computer users.
I know that when I press Ctrl+C, I automatically hold my hands differently until I hit Ctrl+V, so I might as well be storing that data in my left hand. Occasionally, while I’m typing, I’ll realize that I’m feeling a little tense and I don’t know why. Usually, it turns out that I copied something and never needed to paste it.
Does anyone else alter their posture based on the contents of their clipboard?
