Handwriting

Handwriting Analysis

This was fun. Well not the analysis part, that was stupid. But trying to write my name with a mouse was kinda fun. It looks very Flowers For Algernon to me. Either I have terrible handwriting (which actually I must admit I do), or I have a bad mouse. Or more likely, both.

I did an electronic signature awhile back at a bank, where you write on an electric pad and can't see how it comes out. I did that, and she said, "Oh, I think it must have come out wrong. Your last name's just a swoop."

"No, that's really my signature," I told her. "See?" And I showed her my driver's license, with about 10 letters consolidated into one curved line. "But the swoop still has the two dots over the i's. That's the most important part. I always dot with a flourish."

I'm supposed to be outside shoveling, but I'm inside writing my name with a mouse instead. In theory, I shouldn't need to shovel. I have a recently-fixed snowblower! But I haven't given it any gas, and I don't have to be anywhere in a hurry today (thank goodness for quiet weekends, especially after long weeks), and shoveling should be a good workout.

So here I go, off to shovel. Yep, any minute now, I'll be leaving....

I wonder what I should make for lunch?
