“You can lead a horse to water, but a pencil must be led.”

Stan Laurel (English, Comic actor, Writer and director, famous as the first half of the comedy double-act Laurel and Hardy, 1890-1965)

TIME:  8:23 PM
PLACE:  My desk
SUBJECT:  Smencil (Black Cherry scented)

I’m sitting at my desk tonight, trying to gather enough “umph” to work on taxes.  While I’m sitting here, I notice an odor wafting from my pencil cup.  It was my Smencil!  I’d forgotten all about it.  The children’s sold them at school through their Junior Optimist club for Valentine’s Day.  MonkeyBoy brought me home a Black Cherry scented one.  Mmmm…”Gourmet scented pencils, Made from 100% recycled newspapers, Saving trees…one pencil at at time.”  They are very smelly and I mean that in the nicest way possible. *And* it provided me with a photo for today.  What a good pencil.

Very cool! I've never heard of scented pencils.
I'm getting things together to do my taxes too. It's my job for tomorrow!

Smencils?? I'm thinking this might be a wonderful prank to pull on one of my accounting coworkers! Does that make me a bad person??
