“Moooooommmmm, check out this cool thing I found in the neighbor’s trash,” my daughter shouted out as she came in the house yesterday. ( The fact that she was digging in the neighbor’s trash is a whole other issue) She calls out, ” I think it’s called a typewriter…..why would someone want to throw something this cool out???”
She quickly hauls the thing up to her room, plugs it in, and with great anticipation begins typing. And with in mere moments she is obsessed with this antiquated Sears typewriter! As I type this post on my MacBook laptop computer, she is happily typing away in her room. As a matter of fact, even SportTman has gotten in on the fun, and they are both typing notes to each other. They both think it’s so cool how there is no printer involved, and the typed print almost magically appears on the paper!
And as an added bonus, the notes they type to each other have been really sweet and kind. These typed notes to each other contain words I never hear spoken in our house!
So the Sears typewriter has brought peace and harmony to our house, at least for the moment!
As the saying goes, “One man’s trash, another man’s treasure!!”
Throw out the iPods, Playstations, laptops, cell phones and bring back the typewriter!! 🙂
