pencil sharpener

A manual pencil sharpener, purchased in desperation during drawing class.

Found: In my desk drawer. Definitely not in my pencil case.

Made of: red plastic, clear plastic, steel, graphite shavings, broken nibs, chagrin.

Uses: Sharpening pencils when no other sharpener is available. Shredding wood, destroying tips. Exercising futility.

Cost: circa $.95, plus frustration.

Decision: Conflicted. Augment landfill, or pass on to a less pencil-sharpener-having person?
