Hello everyone! I just found a great pencil by…Sharpie! I was wandering into my local Walmart, and right on the endcap(which I realize is reserved for new items) was this very neat pencil. It does not have individual sticks of lead, but instead the lead is liquid, so it is designed to write like a pen. It is much better than the pens that came out years ago (remember, I am over 40) that were erasable ink. This is really a pencil, and it does pretty well. They could improve a bit on the smoothness of the writing, but it is a great new twist, especially for those who teach, like myself. We can always use a great pencil…kudos Sharpie!
