Interesting


I noticed something new recently. My fingers are getting dyslexic. Now that probably isn’t the proper term for this phenomena but I don’t know what to call it. Perhaps you do.

I’ll explain. When typing, I’ve started to switch the letters around, from hand to hand in the base row. I type ‘f’’ for ‘j’, ‘l’ for ‘s’ and most frequently, ‘d’ for ‘k’. What I find fascinating is that it doesn’t happen in reverse and so far, it’s just in the one row. And it’s not always my right hand typing a left hand letter or vice versa. It’s extremely frustrating when I go back and attempt to fix it only to find my rebellious fingers have done the same thing again.

This brings up several questions. Should I be concerned? Is there something weird occurring within my brain since it’s getting markedly worse? Have I perhaps always been this way and it’s only surfacing now because I pay so much less attention to the keyboard when I type?

I just don’t know and I don’t exactly like that. Any thoughts on what point I should honestly begin to worry? Do any of you have similar quirks? If so, please tell me. I’ll feel so much better if you’ve developed some oddity too.

Update on the cable bill - I got a new statement today. I have a $4.22 credit that they will be refunding. Probably in the next century but I'll be sure to leave it to someone in my will so they have to pay eventually.

You've bee typing to me too long:) I have dyslexic fingers...I frequently type 'was' as either 'ws' or 'aws'. And last night my 'p' and 'l' kept trying to enter every word! There...just typed 'work' for 'word' and vice-versa! I need more sleep...

The trip to the adult store? Yup...went into the back room. Saw BOB's of all sizes. Cock rings. Butt plugs. Inflate-a-dates (at least, I think that's what they were!). Edible Undies. And verrrrry interesting er, lollipops...

I get the same thing. You know what I think it is? We're too damn busy and we have 50 million things going on in our head all at the same time. I have to keep reminding myself to slow down.

I switch letters too. Always the same ones.

Sounds like you're making progress with the cable company...it's a Christmas miracle.

I type all over the board. I do better when I use my ergonomic keyboard as the right hand letters are separated from the left hand letters. The laptop? What a mess.

I constantly type the wrong letters - I tranpose them all the time. Even though I'm right handed, I type faster with my left hand and then things get all mucked up. Ergh...
