These are some of my favorite ‘sharp’ things. I like having sharpened pencils to write with unless I am using a pen. I have been working on these word scramble puzzles in the LA Times and I like to use a pencil to fill in the answers in case I need to erase. The letters in words are scrambled and you need to determine the correct word and then solve a riddle, using some of letters from the words, the answer which is a play on the words. It’s fun to figure out the words and then figure out the answer, which is not always easy. Doing these word puzzles keeps your brain sharp. If I were to work on a math problem by hand instead of using a calculator, I prefer to use a pencil. It’s good to have sharpened knives to slice vegetables and meats. It is nice to look sharp in your clothes. Not nice to have a sharp tongue.
