This is brilliant

Illustration for article titled This is brilliant

I was teaching a trumpet lesson today, and I noticed that the student had this sharpened pencil taped into his band binder. I asked him if this was his “In case of emergency, break glass” pencil. He said no, he had failed two “pencil tests” where he had to show the director that he had a pencil, so his mom taped it in there so he would never fail again. He’ll never write with it, but he’ll always pass. Brilliant.
