Fancy pencils, anyone?

Me, I prefer the pencils that come 20 to a box, because that way, when my kids lose all 20 of them I can just smile and comment that they’d lose their heads if they weren’t attached. But you, you seem fancier. Less plagued by children, even. Maybe you’d like a 4-pack of fancy mechanical pencils for under $10 shipped.

Maybe you use them for diagramming. Maybe you’ll use ’em for stocking stuffers. Maybe you’ll send them to your favorite college student along with a passive-aggressive note suggesting they call home once in a while. I don’t know. I don’t need to know.

Live and let buy pencils, that’s my motto. (Well, not really. But this early in the morning, anything could be my motto.)


  1. oh, i thought my kids were the only ones.

  2. My kids, too, have hundreds of pencils floating around the house – I dare the oldest one to say he can’t find a pencil while doing his homework. He’s learning…

  3. What about the kid who HOARDS pencils like they’ll be gone tomorrow but ABHORS using them to, say, write anything??

    It boggles the mind. A gross of sharpened pencil, and nary a written page.

  4. I don’t like mechanical pencils. I would like to ban them from my classroom. The kids spend more time playing with the leads than they do writing with them! Aargh.
