something new every day

sorry it’s been so long…

so i was looking for a new pad of paper for work and i thought i could probably
tack on a new pen to round out the ensemble. after being sorely disappointed in the decline of office supplies (rsvp pens? really?), i noticed the top of a box of pencils. in order to check the brand (the boyfriend likes ticonderoga), i had to pull the box out.

CRAYONS? wheretf have i been? why didn’t i know that *crayons* is *french* for *pencils*!? i felt embarrassed, and a little annoyed.

after further thought and deconstruction of all that i thought to be true…

i realized “crayola” must mean “wax”.
