JUST MY TYPE

Tonight at the thrift store I paid $6.95 for a used laptop

typewriter.

It’s awesome.

And it’s electric.

Which means my new little blue friend makes a VERY loud whirring noise and violently throws its carriage all the way to the right as soon as you turn it on. Better make darn sure there’s nothing in the way. It will get knocked.

This thing means business. Every letter is like a punch. The entire machine (and the table it’s sitting on) quivers, ready to leap into action. Perhaps this nice-looking typewriter kind of enjoys beating up my piece of paper…

Oh! And when you come to the end of a line, that sweet little *ding* you hear belies the dramatic bang you will experience next when “POWER RETURN” sends the carriage flying back to the start position.

Like I said. Awesome.

It’s like a sport, with bells and whistles and powerful blows.

I couldn’t let all this awesomeness go to waste. I had to type something up, right? Then I remembered (*ding*!) I got tagged by another blog this week—a fun little place called Charming Elephant. I might be a little partial to the writer (hint: R-girl), but if I get tagged, I’ll be it.

I decided to answer her cute questions on my laptop typewriter. Hope you can follow along.

Here goes:

Did you see that?? Yes, my typewriter types in two colors. It’s on the cutting edge of cool.

And the first word to the next question is:

2. If…

I just typed “lol” on a typewriter. Bet that hasn’t happened very often.

Might have had to pull out your reading glasses for that one, huh?

And did you catch my favorite subject, girls?

Thanks for tagging me, Charming Elephant. I love your blog! And, OK I won’t say it here. But I also love y-o-u.

Oops I just said it. Sorry!
