Can someone say, “Best belated birthday present ever!”?
My Spanish friend just gave me this awesome green, vintage Olivetti typewriter for a belated birthday present that she found at a flea market in her pueblo! She gave it to me as we were picking up the kids from school.
ZB, my 6 year old said, “What is that?”
“A typewriter!” I said.
“What’s a typewriter?”
“It’s what we had before computers, to type on.”
“Why do you need a typewriter when you have a computer?”
“Because it’s awesome!” I said.
It comes with it’s own case!
And it works! I love my friends! (And, of course, I love them even if they didn’t give me a green, vintage typewriter for my birthday.) Now I need to find a prominent place for it in my living room. (If only every single available space wasn’t taken up by the kids’ Legos! Sigh.)
