The Typewriter

My Mom used to have the exact same typewriter when I was a kid and I think I was just about ten when she started to teach me how to type properly. I breezed through typing class in high school and college because I learned how to type early.
I was so enamoured with the typewriter, I used to put it beside me when I slept. Aside from writing mundane stuff I remember typing up song lyrics too. Unfortunately the book I made was destroyed during Typhoon Ondoy.
My son has never experienced using this old school device. Too bad he won't be able to feel getting his fingers stuck in between keys.
