What? You don’t have one? Your tip broke? You lost it? Well, OK, I think I know where you can get one. In fact, I know where you can get one with enough lead that you’ll never be in this kind of pickle again. And you definitely won’t ever lose it. OK?

This giant pencil has a super fine tip and was my last stop in Virginia on my road trip through Virginia and North Carolina last summer.
While the biggest pencil I’ve seen was as the City Museum in St. Louis, Missouri, this one is pretty impressive, and it’s a bit more public. And it would certainly last you for scantron after scantron.
