Weekend Writing Prompt #59 – Typewriter

I have just the tale for this, but whether it’ll reach the word limit, I don’t know, so here goes!

I was always fascinated by the tap tap tap of Dad on his typewriter. He had one of those old clunky things that if you hit the keys too fast they all jammed together. It was too heavy for me to lift, so I couldn’t ‘play’ with it and so when I was asked what I’d like for either Christmas or my birthday (I can’t remember which), I asked for a typewriter of my very own.
‘Petite’ did a range of kiddies typewriters, with either a blue, grey or pink zipper casing, and as the special day approached, I got more and more excited.
I was over the moon when I was presented with my gift which promised to hold the writing tool of my dreams.
However, I had to hide my disappointment when I discovered the case held keys of a different kind, that of a piano accordion.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
