Crayons

I could not resist buying a box of crayons during the back-to-school sale. At 22 cents a box, that's less than a penny per Crayola. What a bargain!

I haven't used my crayons, but I did open the box to see if they still have that slight petroleum odor and to check the colors. Besides the original red, yellow, blue, green, violet, orange, black and brown, there were 16 other colors including apricot.

Color names are now printed on the paper jackets in three languages, a good learning tool.
