O calo do escritor
Like many people over the age of 40, I still have a callused knobby excrescence on the third finger of my right hand, the place where pencils and ballpoints and fountain pens have been resting ever since I first began to learn the Palmer method of cursive handwriting. Kids no longer have this "writer's bump," since cursive isn't seriously taught any more. Michael Dirda, inA Paean to the Time when Everyone -- Even Doctors -- Knew How to Write Properly
Olhei para o dedo: já perdi o meu calo. Alguém realmente ainda tem o seu?
