I got to missing my old typewriter, so I dug it out of the closet today. I was amazed that after so many years the thing still worked!
Placing a piece of paper into the typewriter, positioning myself in my chair, and placing my fingers on the keyboard, I begin to type. Oops… Boy that isn’t even a word. Let me try this again. Wow, that didn’t work either.
Let me remind you that I’m usually a pretty fair typer at 50-60 words per minute. However, I had forgotten the feel of an electric typewriter, and boy did I goof up. The computer keyboard has a different feel to it, and when I sat down to type on the typewriter… well, I guess you can say I forgot how to type with a typewriter. Just going to have to practice again until I get the feel for it. It won’t take long I’m sure.
Do you still have your old typewriter? Having an urge to go back to the days when typewriters was all we had to write with? Well then, go pull that old typewriter back out; you’ll be amazed how much different it feels! And who knows, maybe I won’t be the only one who forgot how to type on a typewriter.
Post your comments to let me know if you pulled your old typewriter out, and let me know if your experience was the same as mine. 😉
