BP McG said…I was sitting in math class in 7th grade when I accidentally dropped my right hand on top of a recently-sharpened pencil I held in my left.
“Ouch,” I said, raising my right hand. The pencil came along with it, firmly planted in my skin. Next to me, pretty Patty Rayburn recoiled in horror.
The palm of my hand still has a gray dot from where the graphite stained my skin forever.
