Slow typing

I cut my thumb last night when I was preparing dinner and I am having to use the wrong thumb for the space bar. I can't believe how slow that makes my typing so if I seem curt you know why. See how slow it is here.

I can't play the clarinet either for at least a week because of the bandage.

We didn't even get the dinner in the end because I burnt it while faffing around for plasters etc.

I'll be all healed up in time for Nano, though, so that's all right.

Oh, ouch, ouch, ouch, ouch, ouch!

And no music as an added punishment.

But at least you make it sound like you'll be healed up quickly. I dearly hope so.

Well, I can play my descant recorder OK, so I'll probably give the clarinet a go tomorrow.

That's faster than I can type even with my extra thumb screwed in.

Can you still stir tea?

fairyhedgehog said...

It plays faster than it records, I think.

I can stir tea, so all important faculties are unimpaired.

It's always the key (no pun intended) fingers that get the damage. I knocked a lump out of the tip of my left index finger last month and painfully discovered how many words are full of T's and R's.

Ouch, Kevin, that sounds nasty!

It's amazing how fast we can adapt when we really want to do something and I see that you are attempting to play your clarinet!

I'm so sorry! Finger cuts are the worst, because yuo never think about how much you use your fingers until you use them in pain.

Scarlet, I really do want to play clarinet but I'm not sure how it will go.

Robin, Thanks! It's not hurting now, but not being able to use it properly is a nuisance.

My fingers are so stubby and fat it's like typing with ten penises...

Penii?

I avoid sex scenes in my writing for that very reason...

May your thumb heal better than it ever was.

Sorry to be selfish, but I appreciate that your typing is slow. I don't read very fast, so I'm able to keep up, almost.

Scott... wow, now that is a bit of a system shock to someone with an insistently visual imagination. Yikes.

fairyhedgehog said...

Scott, I've never had to know what the plural of penis is. I've had no experience of typing with one either so I can't guess what it would be like to type with ten of them.

Actually, I only use nine digits for typing so with one out of action I've brought on the reserve.

pjd, I'm glad my typing speed meets with your approval. I just hope I'm back to normal by November.
