Today's 100 words:
I'm only thirty-eight, but until I started graduate school in 1994, I did all my writing assignments on typewriters. Computer labs were available at my college, of course, but the professors didn't require that we use them, and since I had a typewriter in my dorm room, I typed. As a graduate student, however, I had my own office, which was furnished with a tiny, medieval-by-today's-standards computer, and I abandoned my typewriter. When I started my teaching career two years later, I discovered that the computer in my office was so high-tech that I hardly knew how to use it.
