When i was 6 years old my best friend had her tonsils taken out.  I got her crayons and coloring books and drawing paper as a get well gift.  it was crayola's 64 color box with the sharpner in the back of the box .  I coveted that gift.  It wasn't like I didn't have crayons of my own.  But those were 64 colors!!!The crayons were sharp and solid and included three metalic shades of gold, silver and bronze. so even tho the crayons were my gift to her i resented her for the entire afternoon.

years later the waxy smell of crayons still takes me back to many happy hours of drawing and coloring.  and the 64 color box still makes me smile.
