Hey there, people!
A long, long, long time ago, back when the temperatures were hotter, and the days were longer, and an alarm clock was not necessary, and you could use the bathroom whenever you needed, I received an email.
It was summer, in case you didn’t know.
Although how could you not know, what with all the hints I just gave.
The email was from the Dixon Ticonderoga company.
Did you know that I love a good Ticonderoga pencil? Especially when it comes already sharpened in the pack? Oh, how I love that. I like the way my printing looks when I use a Ticonderoga.
And, let’s be real here, isn’t it fun to say Ticonderoga? Doesn’t it remind you of the book (and movie which was equally good and that is almost always hard to do) Fried Green Tomatoes when Evelyn Couch screams, “Tawonda!” as she hits that stupid little girl’s Volkswagen bug over and over? If you have not seen or read Fried Green Tomatoes, that is a must do for your Thanksgiving break. I’m serious. You will thank me. And then, if you have extra time, you need to read all of the rest of Fannie Flagg’s books because they are hilarious and sweet and you will not be able to put them down.
I mean, TICONDEROGA!
They sent me an email and asked me to review a kit of fun filled stuff for them. They have a brand called Prang which focuses on markers and colored pencils and watercolors. I said
hot dog! Tawonda! TICONDEROGA! and look what I got in the mail!
