Typing 101 and the Ideal Secretary

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.

Wow, how does that chick get any work done when her face is in her crotch like that? That's freaky. Have you seen the movie "Secretary"? It was strange but good. Good, in a freaky kind of way.

That's how I type too, but instead of 4 I use 8, hehe. And I also look at the keyboard!

I'm wondering why that secretary is almost naked, personally.

Typing class in high school? The ONLY practical skill I got out of the whole 5 years.
