Yesterday after work I decided I’d stop in to Klein’s on 4th and Pasqua and top up my gas tank. Not only is the gas usually 4-5 cents cheaper than anywhere else, Bob and the girls always have 620 CKRM blaring in the background. That alone seems like a good reason to spend my money there!
As I waited to pay for my gas there was a young lady in front of me waiting for the same thing. There was another person in front of her, so this lady ahead of me decided she’d bide her time by doing some texting. I couldn’t believe it. She held her phone with one hand and was texting with her thumb. And she wasn’t plodding along either. Her thumb was dancing across that keyboard at a pretty good clip. I was impressed!
I’m a relative newcomer to the cellphone and texting world. I need one hand to hold my phone while my index finger from my free hand does the letter punching. I thought I was coming along pretty well until I stood behind this lady and watched how it’s really done.
I’ve got a feeling that’s how my Toronto Maple Leafs are going to feel by the time the Washington Capitals are through with them. I think I might just practice texting with my thumb while watching the Leafs and Caps go at it in game one Thursday night.
We’ll see who’s further ahead when the hockey season wraps up this spring!
Go Lewis Go!
