Once, I worked a little number two pencil down to a nub. I had drawn many simple drawings and delightful sketches with my little yellow stick. When it finally became too small to fit in my hand, I just didnt have the heart to
throw it away. I decided to set my lucky pencil into a bezel setting and wear it as a lavish jewel.
