The mechanical pencil fell out of my notebook. I didn't know it until it landed on my little toe. Ouch... that hurt. I picked up the pencil and put it back in the notebook and kept going. A little later my toe was still hurting so when I actually looked at it I realized that the pencil lead had not only broken off when it hit my toe, but it had also pierced the skin and gone all the way under. Immediately I thought about the possibility of lead poinsoning. Ah, John said there is no lead in pencil lead - it's actually graphite. Relief. Then the fun process of trying to remove the "lead" from my toe. Ouch.
P.S. Here's the latest costume Will is wearing at our house - he's so cute! It's hilarious watching him walk around in John's big boots!
