A Letter To My Pencil

An Essay By Delaney // 10/9/2008

Just a silly little letter I wrote to my pencil, trying to explain to him my great frustration over my writer's block, for which I rather unfairly blame him. ;)

Dear Friend,

Who do you think you are? Do you think you have the right to be so fresh and smart with me? I guess you think you’re pretty sharp, hm? Well, maybe I’ll just crush that finely pointed tip of yours in the dirt. Will you be so beautiful then? I’ve always said that there’s nothing that maddens me more than a dulled pencil point, but a sharpened, uncooperative pencil point is ten times more maddening!


Yes, my friend. You are indeed the most aggravating object in the world right now. If you must refuse so stubbornly to write what I want you to write, then you might as well just be dull and ugly. You might as well lose that soft, perfect, pink eraser of yours. I’ll rub that in the dirt, too, till it’s too smooth and dirty to erase anything! Not that I’ll need to erase anything at the rate I’m going. I have so much to say, but I can’t put it in words! You’re in my way.

    Love,

    Delaney



P.S. And don’t you dare think of writing me some pointed, snippy reply. I’m not in the mood.

Cute! I loved the PS...that was the best! Sometimes I think that pens and pencils actually are the cause of all our writer's block problems! :0)
This reminds me of a couple of silly essays I've written about pens and pencils, althought none of them were as goofy as this one!

Glad I could make you laugh,

Glad I could make you laugh, Emily! :)

Heather - I'm SURE they are, but usually only if they're lovely-smelling, yellow, sharp No. 2 pencils. They're so wonderful they're distracting. ;)

The whole thing was perfect.

The whole thing was perfect. It was so funny!!! I loved the part about the perfect eraser. And the Postscript was hilarious. Someday, I will manage to come up with something half as funny as this.
