Joyce and her two boys, Rupert and Alan are in the attic together doing some cleaning up.
The kids uncover an old manual typewriter and ask, “Hey mom, what’s this?”
“Oh, that’s an old typewriter,” she answered, thinking that would satisfy their curiosity.
“Well what does it do?” asked Rupert curiously.
“I’ll show you,” said his mom said and looked for a blank piece of paper. When she found one, she rolled the paper into the typewriter and began striking the keys, leaving black letters of print on the page.
“WOW!” Alan and Rupert exclaimed, “That’s really cool! But how does it work like that? Where do you plug it in?”
“There is no plug,” mom answered. “It doesn’t need a plug.”
“Then where do you put the batteries?” persisted Alan.
“It doesn’t need batteries either.” continued mom.
“Wow! This is so cool!” they exclaimed. “Someone should have invented this a long time ago!”
