cursivePosted: October 23, 2012
Something tells me that this Baby Blues cartoon must be based on an actual incident. I don’t doubt that this could well be the case. I rarely use cursive any longer. When I create a grocery or errand list I print. I rarely have the occasion to write a personal note anymore, and when I do I normally create a card on the computer which I then sign by hand. About the only time I use cursive is to sign my name or write a check. And I don’t write many checks anymore, using debit or credit cards when I am out and about and online bill pay for almost all of my various bills. I of course use a credit card when ordering merchandise from Amazon and good old PayPal when ordering from eBay.
In fact, when I do write a check, except for my signature, it often comes out as an odd combination of cursive and printing. As I think about it, in fact, I think I don’t even want to go there. My checks can look fairly ugly these days.
