I remember when we still used typewriters to write stuff "faster." Not kidding. I still have it—it's an Underwood.

Then we got a Mac.

Then, for some weird reason we got an IBM. Then a Compaq. Then an eMachine. Then a Dell. Now, after over fourteen years of the Blue Screen of Death and one useless Compaq laptop became sledgehammer fodder (literally—I smashed the fucker with a hammer) we moved back to Macs.

I still don't know why we switched. But I do know that I would make a horrible computer science teacher because I get frustrated trying to explain how to use a Mac to someone (my mother) who hasn't used one in so long.

Makes me long for the time when we still used the typewriter.

I think I'll write my novel on it. I just need a new ribbon (or loads of carbon paper).

I often think back to high school and the untold events which lead me to take, of all things, "Typing" a skill I now use everyday.

I don't miss those old Selectrics we practiced on, though at the time, I thought they were awfully impressive.
