Subject:  Re: Ten or 12 in the Pool tonight!
Message:  Jim, I'm not that fast. My typing teacher in High School was the football coach and I got one of the cheerleaders to turn in all my assignments for me. When I got to TCU I realized what a mistake that was. Learning on an old manual Royal Typewriter gave you finger strength, then I remember that first IBM Selectric with that funny silver ball inside that you could change out and have a different type face. Of course, I had to learn not to beat the hell out of the keys. Then I got my first computer back in '91, for some reason I can type much faster on the computer than I ever could on a typewriter. My max on the typewriter was about 55 words a minute, sometimes I can hit 80 on the computer...Unless Virgina happens to be in the pool, then it's down to 30 with five mistakes. But that's ok, I effect her worse than she does me.

Don't worry about "talking" slow. The fact that you're talking is the most important thing.
