How Do You Type?

When someone asks if they can use my computer, it cracks me up to see how they respond to my keyboard.

Out of the 26 letters of the alphabet, only 14 can be still be viewed. The others have been rubbed away from frequent typing. Forget trying to find a vowel, they were the first letters that went.

Yesterday I noticed that the letters “a,” “s,” and “l” are wrinkled. They look sort of like they’ve been poorly shrink wrapped. Did I wear down the keys? I have no idea how that happened.

Thankfully the markers on “f” and “j” haven’t worn away. In high-school I took a class on how to use an electric typewriter. Thank goodness for Word . . that’s all I have to say. I’ve never used a typewriter since, but I learned to touch type.

Most writers I know touch type as well, though I’ve met a few who don’t.

How about you?
