What a funky bug! She showed up on our patio door not long after the kids and I opened a brand new pack of crayons. Oh, yeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaaaah, the 96 pack with the built-in sharpener. . .I would not let the kids touch it until I had carefully loosened that silly perforated flip back top that hasn't changed since I was a kid. You know what I mean about that lid, don't you? Remember how easy it is to pull too quickly and rip the thin paperboard? Some things never change. James and Kate crowded close to me, hankering to grab new crayons, but I was channeling old ketchup commercials and took my time. As I flipped back the lid with one hand, I shielded the crayons with the other and instructed the munchkins to breathe in that glorious new crayon box scent, LOL. I have to admit that I also called dibs on first use of the Midnight Blue crayon :)
So, how could a Sunday morning be much better? Why in the world would I say "this bugs me" about a new box of crayons? I'll tell you. If you are going to play crayons with me, then you'd better not be in a race to see who gets to use the built-in sharpener first. Oh, my, I could almost go Christopher Walken on you if I reach into my brand new box of 96 Crayolas and grab a crayon that has already lost part of its paper wrapper! Just kidding. Christopher Walken didn't show up in our kitchen, BUT I did inform my daughter that she shouldn't need to sharpen that pretty red crayon YET.
Hope your Tuesday is a great one! Hope the worst thing that bugs you today is a wrapperless, broken crayon :)
