Apparently French Canadians Don’t Make Exclamations

October 9, 2013 § Leave a comment


I recently received a French typewriter. According to the original bill of sale, it was purchased by a one James Hess on January 10, 1952 in Montreal. Now, my knowledge of the French language is just enough to recite O Canada and my favourite pizza toppings, and I’m no veteran at using a typewriter…but how come there isn’t an ! on the keyboard? How will I say anything?! It’s probably the universe telling me to cool it with the exclamations. Did you know Woody Allen is still writing a movie/year using a typewriter?!
