This post is not going to have falling off your chair laughing or bring up a political point that is so new and relevant that you immediately Twitter about it, but what just happened to me several minutes ago seems worth writing about.
I am on the computer about four hours a day now, writing, reading blogs or generally wasting time. When I make a comment on some one's blog, I painstakingly type using two or three fingers; the rest of the fingers are dead weight. I have to look at the keyboard, too. That is until now. I was reading an email and responded quickly because for once I had a "funny" comeback and I didn't want to forget it. All ten fingers burst into action and for about three minutes, I typed without looking at the keyboard even once. I typed the whole thing like some glamorous secretary would from the 1970's:
Apparently, some people must have a thing about secretaries, because most of the pictures out there are all sexed-up versions of what I envision when I think of a secretary.
This is the picture that comes to mind...I can hear her saying, "one ring-a-dingy" as I type.
But I would totally believe this secretary if she told me she couldn't help me at the moment because she was all tied up....
And, after viewing this picture, I will always be a little worried if I hear a secretary tell me she will bend over backwards to get the project done for me! I think I'll tell her to relax and to take her time.
I don't get the whole sexy secretary thing, I'm just glad to know that maybe one day, I can type faster and be accurate. No extreme back bends for me.
