Today my Crayola Crayon bubble was busted. Literally busted.
As any story with me it’s a long one and it dates back several months ago when I had a box of 96 crayons and they fell over.
I picked them up and there was a crayon missing. I looked all over for that silly crayon never found it. Like many of you out there in cyber land we all have our OCDs and one of mine is crayons. A box missing a crayon is incomplete. It’s a disaster. It will not do at all.
So I saved and scraped and bought another box of 96 crayons. I dumped the old box in my broken and homeless box and I was so happy I got a full box of 96 crayons.
Isn’t it perfect?
Did you see the imperfection?
I dropped the box yesterday, crayons went flying and I scrambled to pick them up. I think I jinxed myself cause I kept saying I know there will be one missing I know there will be one missing. Sure enough there is one missing.
I looked absolutely everywhere for this crayon. Conner was being silly and texted me that he stole it and fed it to Butter cup (his dog).
I am secretly thinking Crayola did this to me on purpose. Maybe there were only 95 crayons in the box. I even went as far as to check out a new box at Wal-Mart. Nope there were 96.
So I am thinking I probably have the missing color in my orphan box of crayons. Why not look up the colors on the internet and figure out which one I am missing?
And here ladies and gentleman is where my Crayola Bubble burst.
Once person claimed Crayola does indeed only put 95 crayons in a box and one is a duplicate and they will put different wrappers on them with different names. You never know which one is a duplicate. It changes in each box.
I was cynical so I researched some more, where did I look? Well I turned the box over and read the label.
So I dug deep in my Crayola orphan box and pulled out a black crayon and plugged up the missing hole. Two black crayons are better then one anyway right? Maybe I will forget I lost a crayon. Maybe I will eventually find the crayon and I will know that the black is the one I can replace it with.
Sigh my Crayola Crayon bubble is busted
