That's a Big...Pencil

This picture is for Karen Schindler:


I received the "big" pencil as a gift when I was nominated for Kansas Teacher of the Year in '06. The smaller (regular scale) version with my name is an artifact of my childhood. My dear mother ordered a box of personalized pencils. The red specimen might be the last survivor from that box.

I'm not teaching a class on hunting monsters. Yet.

But I do have the pencil.

I'm rolling on the floor laughing. For anybody who missed it yesterday, I told Aaron via twitter that I dreamed that he was teaching a class on how to find and kill monsters. In the dream he had a really big pencil.

I didn't go into all the freudian implications of that on twitter ..... but I may have to revisit the subject now... oh man...

I always edit with lead pencils. I too have pencil envy.

Nobody is going to make the requisite "pencil in your pocket" joke? Nobody?

Wow. That IS a big pencil. *cough*

I had those personalized ones though! I wish I'd kept one, those were awfully--er... well, cool. Or so I thought.

I was actually cooler then, though, so maybe they were!

That pencil is not really all that big, it's just that the first one is so little. :)
