WTF? Seriously...WTF Ryan?!?! I just don't even know where to go with this. Are YOUR kids this weird? Please make me feel better.
And now the answers to the obvious questions:
Answer to question #1 - Broken pencil leads of course... I mean COME ON!
Answer to question #2 - More than 60. Evidently from regular pencils, thick ones, thin ones, even mechanical ones.
Answer to question #3 - Hidden in the teeny, tiny, little pocket of Ryan's backpack. I found them as I was putting it in the wash to get ready for school. How long did it take him to get this many?
Answer to question #4 - WHO THE HELL KNOWS? I asked him, he doesn't even know why.
He's been doing this his whole life. Pants pockets have been filled with rocks, mulch and acorns. Most of which I was able to intercept before they made it into the washer.
But broken pencil leads? I am at a loss.
