A Day in the Life of a Pencil…

A Day in the Life of a Pencil...

Ananya A., Staff Writer

Hi! My name is Pen, but I am not a pen. Actually, I am a yellow, #2 pencil. Right now, I am really angry at my owner. This fifth-grade student first stole me from my previous owner, the teacher. Now, he has made my day with a little nibbling on my head. Never mind, I lied. It was a LOT of chewing! Also, it is amazing how many mistakes he can make writing a simple sentence. Because of this, my beautiful, perfectly-pink eraser has now become grey and worn-out to the limit. In addition, I have been sharpened to look like a dwarf pencil. I really need a better owner!
