HEY!!!! I resemble that remark.

My mom was on the phone first thing in the day on my 55th birthday, I am sure grinning ear to ear, while she invited me to move into her neighbourhood, which as you might guess is a 55+ one.

Took typing. Best choice I ever made.

Yeah, but did any of you typists learn to type with your thumbs only? I remember learning to "type" with my pointer fingers! If I was to follow that... I'd be stabbing a cell phone... hahahahhahahah

"Took typing. Best choice I ever made."
