Always one to enjoy a good crayon, I grabbed a piece of paper and started to color. My eyes almost popped out of my head! The crayon was not just a single color, but a blend of many colors. Beautiful colors! I was even more excited than the time I found a long-forgotten package of M&Ms in the pantry. (And I was really excited then.)
I sat there coloring for a good 15 minutes. Then I realized, the kids can't be trusted with these crayons. They don't even appreciate them! Look at them, tossed among the old, broken crayons. Like they were normal and run-of-the-mill. No, no, no! This wasn't right.
So I stole them and they are now in my office, where I can use them at any time. Here - I just drew these pictures.
This drawing features the True to Life crayon called "Caribbean Current." Ahhh.....
The next one is "Sahara Desert." Note the undertones of gray and peach.
Next I bring you "Florida Sunrise," an inspiring mix of oranges and yellows. The oranges didn't show up well on the scan, but they are there. Trust me. They are there.
Finally, "Milky Way." A combination of colors that is as awe-inspiring as our galaxy itself. Maybe more so.
Tragically, there were a few True to Life crayons that could not be located. I know that more than four came in the package. Probably the kids stomped on them or threw them over a fence. Whatever the case, it makes my heart hurt.
Maybe I should just buy myself a new package of these things. What are they, like $5.00? Yes... I think I'll do that. But right now I have more important work to accomplish. Namely, finding a better place to hide these crayons.
