A Pencil! My Kingdom for a pencil!

So I'm taking an exam in about two hours that like most exams will be graded on a scantron machine. It uses those little bubbles. Anyway, they require a number 2 pencil, which if you didn't know just explains the thickness of the graphite.

I looked all over my apartment. Even snooped into the roommate's room. No dice. I have to go to CVS and buy a pencil. How sad is that? A writing tool that I used to use all the time, granted it was over 15 years ago.

I think it's a plot between the government and the pencil manufacturers. Bastiches

That is crazy talk that there is no pencil to be found anywhere. Good luck.
