I'm Sorry

Pencil: I’m sorry

Eraser: For what? You didn’t do anything wrong.

Pencil: I’m sorry cos you get hurt bcos of me. Whenever I made a mistake, you’re always there to erase it. But as you make my mistakes vanish, you lose a part of yourself. You get smaller and smaller each time.

Eraser: That’s true. But I don’t really mind. You see, I was made to do this. I was made to help you whenever you do something wrong. Even though one day, I know I’ll be gone and you’ll replace me with a new one, I’m actually happy with my job. So please, stop worrying. I hate seeing you sad. :)

    This is awesome! Without your inspiration I wouldn’t have even been able to think of the following. It’s not quite so kind and cheerful….

    “I have been mistaken for an eraser, but I am actually an exacto knife. I eliminate mistakes, I can even remove parts that make mistakes, but I never disappear – I might get dull but can regenerate new, sharp blades.” ;)

  • Cool, I’m happy to have inspired you! ;)

  • Hey thank you so much Brenda!! ! thats a beautiful thing to say! – unfortunately controlling every single thought …or idea is far more difficult, sometimes its best just to blend into the woodwork. :)
