My nephew once asked me "why do you use that finger when you text?". Why do you ask I replied. "Dude, it's faster with your thumbs". The challenge was on. We had mini-competitions to see who could text the same line the fastest, me with my index finger and he on this thumbs. He won. Now perhaps it's because his thumbs are smaller than mine, or perhaps it's just what he's used to with years of gaming controllers held firm in his grip. Either way, I leaned into it. And in an effort to minimize that "DAMN YOU, AUTO CORRECT" embarrassement, I'll stick to the oldschool index finger:)
Makes you wonder though, what may become of the keyboard in time. So what are you? Index or Thumbs? - Shellie
