The Electric Pencil Sharpener Story

I remember sitting at the dining room table me and Dad when I told him about an electric pencil sharpener I bought as I excitedly and in disbelief told him all about how it worked and he said, “Yeah I know…I’ve got one at work”.

“You do?”

Come to find out they all had them.

I was devastated. That I didn’t know and more so that he didn’t tell me.

To me it was near miraculous that you could stick a pencil in a hole and it would automatically sharpen it. The absence of a crank handle impressed me the most, since all through school they all had handles. I wanted to share it with him and all this time he had one.

I’m laughing about it now that I thought he would have shared that knowledge with me, but more so that I felt devastated. To him it was no big deal. Or maybe he thought I’d probably want one.

Well it didn’t matter because I had one now.

Looking back I think I mattered more than I did.

I’m still laughing inside. Guess that’s a good thing.

He’s probably crying.

Don’t cry Daddy.
