I’m trying to type without making any noise because everyone else is asleep (this is the only time I can think in complete thoughts). That’s pretty much impossible though since Toshiba put tiny clickers under each of these keys on the keyboard. Good thing I don’t have nails or else it would be double tap tap tapping. This bothers Du like nothing else. Well, it bothers him a lot when I eat M&Ms too. Something about hollow teeth or me purposely crunching loudly. If I had a bag I’d start munching now ’cause I couldn’t make much more noise than I already am and chocolate sounds divine at this moment.
It would be great if someone would invent a way for me to think what I want to type and have it show up on the screen, no?! No noise. No typos. Heck, no effort. Just think and type. Knowing my propensity to stick my foot in my mouth I would think a very ugly thought and think-hit the enter key before I could monitor what my brain was doing. It has a mind of its own, you know.
Oh come on, you know you have those ugly thoughts too. Not that I have them a lot, but I am getting better at controlling mine so I guess the teletyping would not be my friend. Can we all agree though that I will shout “I thought of that first!” when the technology does finally emerge? Unless the technology is already out there. Then I just need a subscription to Popular Science. And a teletyping speed monitor with a manual enter button override. I am going to patent that.
Lots of things to tell you about that will just have to wait. If you’re friends with me on Facebook you already have an advantage. What we’ve been doing. Where we’ve been going. Things we’ve been seeing. It includes church in a movie theater. And no, that’s not worshipping at the throne that is whatever the current “it” movie is. What is “it” btw?
