Too high tech, have to go re-learn...

I was in Office Depot a few weeks ago, and saw that they had fountain pens on display, so I picked up a Waterman Phileas.  A few weeks have passed with it sitting on my desk, but this afternoon I decided to open it up and put it together.  Thus, pen in hand, surrounded by 3 computers, 2 monitors, and countless other high tech gadgets, I pulled out a peice of paper and started to write a letter to my wife (wouldn't she be surprised)...

...Yeah...can you believe that I can't remember how to write cursive?  I don't know how long it's been since I actually HAD to write cursive, at least other than signing my name...and for the life of me I've been trying to do it for the past half hour... 

I'm still going to surprise my wife with a nice hand written letter...but it's going to take a day or two.

  • That doesn't suprise me a bit. My cursive (a blend of the 3 forms they taught me in school) has been long forgotten, replaced by script that was designed to be used by the first CE 1.0 pen input devices. Good luck with the pen, and be sure to pick up a pocket protector so as not to ruin the dress shirts & suit you usually wear.

  • Hi Brian,
    I'm glad to hear you've gone low tech. Surrounded by my computers, I use a fountain pen in a Levenger Notabilia notebook to track my daily to-do's. It may not be the most totally efficient way to do things, but it works surprisingly well. And using a fountain pen on really nice paper is very enjoyable.

    But I have to print :).
