Advice for typists

If one is an accomplished typist, it is better to intentionally slow one’s speed when being observed by friends or family members.

If one fails to do this, one may be asked to spend several hours inputting references to obscure occupational therapy articles, such as “Using the Coefficient of Variation to Detect Sincerity of Effort of Grip Strength: A Literature Review” and “Test-Retest Reliability of Lifting and Carrying in a 2-day Functional Capacity Evaluation.”

One may begin to wonder who, if anyone, edits these titles. Later, one may strain to remember one’s own name and address. Later still, one may find oneself only able to write using indefinite pronouns.

Consider one’s self warned.
