Mom and the kids had been up in the attic together doing some cleaning. The kids uncovered an old manual typewriter and asked her, “Hey Mom, what’s this?”

“Then where do you put the batteries?” they persisted.

“It doesn’t need batteries either,” she continued.

“Wow! This is so cool!” they exclaimed. “Someone should have invented this a long time ago!”
