Just coined some slang!

You know those wireless gadgets with the little thumb keyboards that people use to send e-mail and chat with? I’ve decided to call those “mbiras.” An mbira is an African musical instrument, most commonly found in Zimbabwe, that is held in the hands and plucked with the thumbs. Seeing a friend use one these things reminded me of an mbira player so the name stuck in my mind.

Please feel free to use my coinage.
