“Excuse me,” said my pencil, “may I borrow your imagination?”

“Why?” I asked.

“I don’t have an imagination,” said my pencil.  “I had one, but it got lost somewhere from me being a tree, to becoming a pencil.”

“I have never been asked for my imagination before,” I said.  “I’m not sure how much I can spare.”

“But isn’t your imagination limitless?” asked my pencil.





“Okay, here is my imagination,”  I said.  “Now what?”

“Thank you!  Now I am a tree.  The wind is teaching my branches how to wave goodbye without me going anywhere.  What fun!”

“That’s it?”  I asked.

“That’s it for today,” said my pencil.  “Thanks.”
