I keep a handful of pencils at work, but since at the moment I just have the one Classroom Friendly Pencil Sharpener, I cart pencils home for sharpening and back again. A few days ago, my boss (another pencil user) got her battery operated sharpener working after a hiatus, and went around the office sharpening pencils. When she got to mine, she looked those lonnnng points over and said, "Wow, yours sure don't need sharpening. How do you do that?" I just smiled and told her I have an *awesome* sharpener at home. I should demo it.
In a meeting the other day she complained about the quality of the pencil she was using to take notes. I'm thinking I may have to bring in some Forest Choice and General's Semi-Hex and such. May have another convert.
