I Write With My Feet!

<p>
When I learned to type at 13, for a long, long time I used to fake-type sentences as I heard them, moving my fingers slightly as if I was sitting at a keyboard.&nbsp;</p>
<p>
I would try to type as fast as a moving conversation! I would fake-type what the teacher was saying in class! I would fake-type snippets of television! I would even fake-type as I was going to sleep (which is not relaxing!).</p>

I think this habit may be why my typing speed quickly got up to 90+ words per minute. If you do anything all the time, you are likely to get pretty good at it!</p>
<p>
I still sometimes fake-type even now.</p>
<p>
Also, my whole life I have written with my feet. What I mean is that I often move my right foot (I am primarily right-footed, it seems) to form words like "hello" or "Ellen" or other random things that pop into my head. (Only cursive, of course--no printing.)</p>
<p>
I guess I always figured everyone did this with their feet, but I finally thought to ask my husband the other day, and he said he doesn't. He was surprised to learn what my right foot had been up to all these years.</p>
<p>
Do you write with your feet?</p>
<p>
I sometimes even foot-write complete sentences: lazy, loopy sentences, my ankles and toes revolving and sometimes even adding in the punctuation at the end. I enjoy extending my toes to punch in a little dot for the period. It's fun.</p>
<p>
I don't fake-handwrite; I only fake-footwrite.&nbsp;</p>
