This means I will
be more bitchy than usual likely purchase either too much stuff or miss key items entirely.
Last year, I went to 3 places (on and off Bainbridge) in a hunt for a certain, special and singularly critical
as a parental harassment device felt tip pen and came up short. I started to think it was an imaginary pen and we needed to find a secret, hidden doorway to get a message from a talking unicorn to locate its whereabouts.
That evil pen is back on the list.
Not that I don’t love school supplies. Who doesn’t adore notebooks with crisp, white paper? Or clean, juicy markers, undented by teeth? Or that new-fangled and amazing item which we oldish folks never had the pleasure of using – the glue stick?!
Glue in my school days consisted of two choices: Elmer’s with its orange tip covered by hardened glue (or worse, the internal clog requiring glue bottle surgery to release) or rubber cement. Remember that joy? A metal lid with a brush attached, perfect for dripping the gummy goo across table, desk, sleeves, laps and curious dogs’ noses.
Yes, glue sticks rule.
Cold or no cold, I shall intentionally buy an excessive amount of glue sticks.
What school supplies do you love?
