Your 10 Rules of...

I'm snatching a prompt to get me started on today's blog post. ^_^ It's a nice, interesting one though. It's to list your ten rules of any one thing/hobby, no matter how strange it is. So, I'm going to go all out for it. Well, as much as I could at this time of night.

And, no, I'm not going to do writing, cooking, reading or any of my "normal" stuff. ^_^

My ten rules of collecting crayons. (Yes, I do collect them...and I do use them)

1. There are new colors in each box every year--you must always buy a new one.
2. Know the brands of crayons. Crayola is the best brand. Hands-down. Never buy a department store brand.
3. You do not sharpen crayons. There is no such thing as a crayon sharpener.
4. You must always put the crayons back in the same spot that you took them out of.
5. If you cannot do #4, then arrange them according to color groups, reds, blues, etc.
6. Do not tear crayon boxes on the perforated lines.  Open the top and use them from there.
7. If you've ripped your box, then use a spacemaker for storage, place a thick sheet of paper towel inside or a clean sheet of copy paper.
8. When coloring, use the pointed tip as a point and the rear end as a flat/straight line.
9. Use your crayons in order, then rotate. Oldest set (to use them up) and experiment with some of the new shades.
10. Always have a spare pack to lend or share with others so your favorites aren't otherwise traumatized. Treat them nicely. Like chocolate.
