I bought a typewriter. Craigslist. $35. The seller actually talked me down. What? Anyway, it works great and it's portable. And by "portable" I mean it's really heavy but it has a case and can easily be packed up and tucked away in a closet if we ever get bored with it or feel like using our dining room table for, say, dining.
I love the way it feels. It's so satisfying to press a key and ink appears on paper, instantly. And it makes all those great typewriter noises. (Ding - zip!)
Walter gets it. He makes sure his paper is in straight. He knows he has to press the keys really hard. And he likes the typewriter noises too.
