A Childhood Confession

This reminds me of when I was much younger, when I was daydreaming in school, my pens and pencils would be starships. I had a ten-color pen once where you spun a dial to select the color you wanted. It was great for doing Spirograph. (My Spirograph was cool - I had a regular set and Super set at one point. I wonder if it's still around somewhere? I think maybe Frank took it to his classroom, but I could be completely misremembering.) Anyway, the pen had a clear plastic end so you could see the colors of the pens, so course that was the Starship Excalibur or some such, with the newly-developed warp 2.0 engine....

Youth is wasted on the young.
