When I was in first grade our classroom had acquired a cheap manual typewriter, which as I have said, was an unusual novelty, and I used it whenever I could. I remember my teacher, Ms. Juanita Adams, complaining that I spent too much time on the typewriter. “You should work more on your handwriting, Jason. You might need to write something while you’re out on the street, and you won’t just be able to pull a typewriter out of your pocket.”
She was wrong.

Jeg er lidt yngre end Dominus men mange af mine erfaringer er de samme. Og i dag er min indkøbsseddel skrevet på maskine, på min telefon.
