Yes, this is Typing Assignment #9 for Joe Van Cleave’s blog. I did skip TA#8 due to busyness and just wasn’t moved by the prompt.
This assignment was to write a one-page hypothetical story in the life of a real-life stranger that you periodically see. I did bend the rules a little on this one. I was in a weekly bowling league for a few years, and though I bowled on a team of senior citizens, we only knew very general things about each other. Early on, they knew I was a little different from them when I took offense to an off-color, Michelle Obama joke one of them made. So I put myself in the mind of one of them, and fictionalized this speculative analysis. It’s more a story about resistance and adjustment to change.
I typed this on my 1954 Olivetti Lettera 22, on one of the sheets of the Eaton’s corrasable onion skin paper from the box.
