UNDER MY THUMBS

When I learned to type
My fingers fit the keyboard
And I used all my fingers
I could get a rhythm and flow going on
Much like playing a piano.
But now I've had to learn
To use only my thumbs or my pointer finger
For texting
And it’s driving me crazy!
My fingers don't fit the tiny keyboard!
Yeah, yeah I know
I can speak”  my comments
But I don’t always want others to hear me
And if I call that person
They won’t answer!
What’s up with that?
Only their thumbs are available?
And then there’s the hassle of Skype or Facetime.

SFX: Video call coming through

Shit! 
Be right there,I yell off camera.
I then scramble and grab more to put on
Because I'm in the tropics and it's hot here
And my grandkids don’t need to see
Barely clad grandma.
So? 
Ever have to dress or redress for video calls?
And what about long conversations via texting?
Thumbs up? Thumbs down? 

Always,
Em-Musing

I type only using two fingers anyway. Yeah, never learned how to properly do it. I can hunt and peck at a rather fast rate though. (For hunting and pecking anyway.)
Short texts only. If more needs to be said, call. That is what the phone was designed to do. And yes, lame when people don't answer!
And the Facetime calls are planned in advance, so I'm always prepared.

Maybe it's because I spend so much time on the computer, but I'm REAAAAAAAAAAALLY not a fan of texting.
