Old school pencil sharpener, I remember dreading to get up and sharpen my pencil in class. Everyone looks up and watches ya and then you take the pencil out and have to turn it a different way to get the other side sharp as well.
My daddy ALWAYS kept green spearmint Certs in his pocket. He emptied his pockets every night at bedtime, and he would have his coin change, his wallet, his roll of green Certs, and a black tube of regular/plain ChapStick!
Back when TVs were a decorative piece of furniture and us kids were the remote control! Also that multi-color test pattern that came on after the station signed off for the night and they played the star spangled banner.
