Ok, so I know I sound irresponsible and I shouldn't have let this happen, but I'm just worried about my Macbook. Today I tripped and spilled some juice I was carrying onto my white 13" Macbook. It didn't do much and the movie I was watching on it continued to play although I'm pretty sure I saw the screen flicker for a split second. I got scared so I shut it down and tried to get the juice out with a towel, but that wasn't really invasive enough. Eventually I just decided to leave it closed upside down on my counter. to try and get as much juice as I could to drain out of the keyboard area. Around an hour later I came back and was curious so I turned it back on and everything seemed to be in working order (except a few keys were sticky ...from the sugar I assume) But then after around 15 minutes I tried typing in stuff and the "o" key and the space bar didn't work. After that I turned it off again. I'm not sure if I busted the keyboard up for good or if this is just temporary so I'm really worried. Should I just wait a few more days? Also the computer is pretty old so I definitely can't even consider using the Apple Store Warrantee
