LOL no not one finger. i learned to type in high school and i played the piano if that makes any sense. i'm also ambidextrous. so i go pretty fast with one hand but it does take me longer than two. 😉 i do have trouble with highlighting text or moving it and pressing three keys at once! it's much faster if i don't try to use caps. so sorry about that. 😃
