Girl vs. Boy: GAME ON

It was an absolutely wonderful weekend (besides being sick, REALLY sick on Saturday morning) and I will post some pics of the weekend later...however, I have to comment on an event that took place last night.

Let me set the scene. 

9PM (aka bed time), sitting side by side in the bed.  Jimmy & I are both on our separate laptop computers.  I am working.  He is downloading something, I think.  Typical. 

I look over to see what he's doing because he's typing awfully fast and consistently.  Maybe a long email? 

Oh no, he's doing an online typing race.  Think 4th grade computer lab typing.  They give you a paragraph and you type it and they tell you your WPM.  Why is he doing this?  I have no idea.  But of course, I think it sounds fun.

I stop working and immediately get an account so I can play (probably that competitiveness in me??).  Then we race each other to see who can type faster for probably 30 minutes. 

Is this what it's like to be married? 

If you are interested, here is the website.

It sounds stupid, but it's addicting.  My top was 83 WPM.  And I kicked Jimmy's butt every time.  His excuse?  Apostrophe's aren't his thing. HA.


  1. Oh my gosh, I may have to try this out. I was the fastest typer in my computer class in high school. No big deal. :)

  2. My students beg me to play this during computer lab... :)
