Weird typos

I don't know why, but the last few weeks I've been noticing myself do a strange sort of typo where I type words or - more often - parts of words backwards. Like instead of "instead," I type "nistead" or something similar. It's weird. I'm sure I could come up with a better example if I could remember any offhand, I know some of them have really made me stare at the screen going "huh?"

Then, too, I find myself also missing certain letters, but it's not the fault of the keyboard, at least not usually. Because paying attention, I've noticed sometimes I just don't hit the letter very hard or, other times, I don't hit it at all. Also weird.

Oh yeah, and I just got reminded that sometimes I get ahead of myself and type whole words before they're supposed to be there, or part of the words. Like above, I was trying to type "I'm sure I could come up with," and typed "I'm sure I come could up with" instead. Makes me wonder if more than one of us is typing, and one of us is ahead of the other and types a word before we switch back to whoever was slower.

The "wrong order" stuff is something I've been suffering for years now.

First noticed it as doubling the wrong letter (for example "nedd" instead of "need"). But also a lot of the "swapped letters" bit.

With things like typing, you are using "macros" (to use a programming term). That is, a group of actions tied to a single command.

It's just muscle actions, rather than computer commands.

And what's happening in both cases is that a command or command string is getting swapped.

OMG I've done "ndde" instead of "need" before.

Blargh. Why does living have to be such a pain?
