Matt writes: 15 years ago, I was playing Scattergories with some co-workers. I was close to winning. The category was "hobbies," and the letter was T. I submitted "typing." I was shut down, and my arguments were met with laughter. But surely if the letter had been W, "writing" would qualify! Can "typing" be considered a hobby?
No. I personally do miss the deep haptic, tickety-tack pleasure of slamming those keys down on the manual typewriter I had (pretentiously) in high school. But the hobby was not "typing." The hobby was "terrible poetry writing." If there are any true, pure hobby typists out there, I'm sorry. Feel free to type me some angry letters. But unless they literally read "MDZSJFJFDS!" or whatever, you're ALL frauds. I'm sorry your co-workers were mean, and yes, T for "hobbies" is a hard pull in Scattergories. But take the L (for the hobby of "letting it go after 15 years").
