Anyway, that got me thinking about some of the school supplies that we had when I was growing up. Nothing too fancy, just your basic stuff such as that number two pencil over there, freshly sharpened to release the aroma of cheap pencil wood.
Or this black and white composition notebook. Perfect for taking notes, or just doodling while the teacher rambles on and on about equilateral triangles. I was quite the doodler in school, filling all the margins and backsides of my papers with important scribbles. Well hey, I already knew all about equilateral triangles!
Who can forget the PEE CHEE folder and how much fun it was to doodle all over that thing as well. We used to get them for as little as 10 cents a piece. (I'm older than you, ok?)
There were certain things you had to do to the pee chee to make it cool and one of them was this:
We used to write "Love is Pee~Chee but sex is an all season sPORT
And then, last but not least, the Pink Pearl eraser. I saw the most fun film on Mr Rogers Neighborhood once, where they showed how these erasers are made. What fun, I'm telling you! Why, I think just working all day with that color of pink would be just a ball!
Ok kids, now, can you believe it that I am so old, that in my elementary school, teachers were allowed to spank us if we were naughty? It's true. I had this horrible 2nd grade teacher, who, if one student misbehaved, would then make us all stand up and she would smack our bottoms with a ruler. Oh man, if I could relive that school year, I would have snatched that ruler right out of her hand and wacked her right back with it!
So now, tell me about your favorite old school supplies, or some school tale, and do have a lovely Tuesday everyone!
Ok, Lime's comment has reminded me that I forgot crayons! Is the 8 pack in the proper rainbow order for you, Lime dear?
