Skills learnt in childhood: QWERTY typing

I belong to a generation when children were routinely sent sor shorthand
and typing classes (it was,indeed, as Salman Rushdie would have put it,
called shorthandtyping). I am still not comfortable typing on a mobile
phone.

We had tests to rate our speed in both. I don't think I stuck at the
lessons long enough to even get to the numerals row..I quit after the quick
brown fox started jumping over the lazy dog.

But yes,unlike my algebra,geometry and trigonometry, this was one learning that has been very useful.
