Strikes Again

I have a plethora of pencils from Staples' 1 cent deals, so I sharpened a bunch of them and put them in a black metal cup by the phone two days ago. I thought it looked nice and inspired Big Kid and I to write.

I just noticed that little kid has systematically removed every single pencil eraser since then. The pencils are in the cup, but he has yanked all of the erasers out by the root and put them in a tidy pile next to the cup.

Man, that ticks me off. Brand new, perfectly sharpened, eraserless pencils.

Yes that is just the kind of thing that would really annoy me.

How does he come up with that stuff? It is almost like he knew it would be incredibly annoying. LOL

Silver lining: Wouldn't you much rather have the erasers in a pile by the cup than floating around in his stool? :) Gross, but true.

I totally used to eat pencil erasers.

I know.

Too funny! I have to confess, when I saw the title in my reader, I was excited to possibly read another chapter in the "poop bomb" saga. Whatever happened? Did Mr. Ashley find the culprit? Did you sic Little Kid on him? Your readers want to know! :)

The poop bomber has been laying low lately. When Lynda Kay stayed here to watch the dogs, she went to bring them in and Murph escaped her for one second and before he was even across the yard, the neighbor behind us (and #1 suspect) was standing there screaming "Don't let your dog on my property!" although there had been no other dog incidents and he wasn't on her property and Lynda Kay was 2 steps behind him. So, I'd bet money it's her/her husband. Jerks.

Just reading that story makes me want to punch something. That is something my type A brain could not handle :)
