The Box of Crayons
There’s a full box of crayons here at work. We don’t know whose they are.
The label on them says that they’re “Brilliant Colors and Premium Quality”. The color of each wrapper doesn’t match the color of the crayon (neither the way the wax looks or the color it appears on paper) and they’ve obviously been made poorly: they’re barely used and they’re drastically different lengths. The wrappers are crooked on the crayons, too.
If this isn’t enough, there’s not a black crayon. There are three greys (labeled Gray, Blue-Gray, and Silver) and lots of dark blues; I’ve just now found a crayon labeled black, but when I mark it on the paper, it’s just grey.
I can’t decide whether I like it because it’s eccentric or I don’t like it because it’s cheap. Either way, I’m sure a kid won’t care.
