Underwood!

Thing 2's Underwood

Thing 2 found this gorgeous typewriter while we were thrift store browsing today.
I heard, “Mommy!! Come quick!”
When I arrived at the sound of her voice I saw her…hands hovering over the keys, body nearly vibrating with excitement. “Look at THIS!” She said to me.
“OHMYGOD!” Said I, “do you know what this is?”
“A typewriter.” (Like, DUH.)
“Not just any typewriter! Hemingway wrote on an Underwood! And Fitzgerald! And Harper Lee!! Oh my God, (insert Thing 2’s name) this is amazing! I want it!!”
“Too bad Mommy, I found it and I call dibs.”

Thing 2’s birthday is next month, she will be 16…for less than $50 birthday came early for this young lady.
We brought it home, (Damn that thing is heavy!) she set it up and said, “I’m a finally a real writer.” I can hear the clickity clack of the keys from the other room as I write these words.
She just called out, “thank you so much, Mommy!”
“You are so welcome, baby!”

My heart is near bursting!
