    This UK news item cracked me up,

    It’s a big voting day in the UK today – what we call local election (Wales is a bit different).But the BBC is reporting that voters are being asked to take their own sterile pencil with them to mark their votes.

    Obviously the reason is … covid transmission.

    And we arrogant humans get laid low again. Just when I get a handle on ‘it’s a crazy world we live in’, it delivers another slice.

      So it’s sterile, you can lick it. It can be propelled…..I’m beginning to wonder if there’s a point to it all….

      Went to vote this evening and as we walked to the polling station “she who must be obeyed” suggested I adhpjust my top as it was accentuating my bust. No panic or censure just a quiet word of advice and encouragement.  I’m a very lucky girl.

      I bring my sterile pencil with me everywhere I go…..  Been doing it for decades, specifically starting right after the birth of our second child – HA!  (Sorry, couldn’t resist……)

        Marcellette, Marcellette… you are a hoot in anyone’s language! Ohh, I wish I could’ve thought of that! Sadly, I don’t know how many children I have across the globe… always had a less than ‘sterile’ pencil! However, the lead had dropped out and my propulsion is now reliant on the Jet Propulsion Laboratory inventing other means…

        But… ‘Lick ones own pencil’? Sounds like a contorsionniste act!

        Ohh, I can’t stretch that far… Polly

        lol, well you wouldn’t want it not to be? – I guess that was an assumption of mine 😉

        I’ve now been down to vote and noticed theory and practice haven’t quite meshed in my neck of the woods. On each voting  ‘booth’ was a trusty little pencil – 2B I’d say – tied by a bit of string so people wouldn’t nick it !

          Round here the village inbreds lick the pencils before using them. That’s reason enough.

      Hi All,
      I do not know how you all coped with the Covid lockdowns, It sounded so terrible.
      We only had 1 day of lock down here and that was enough for me.
      My family in The UK has had a horrible time.
      It has changed all our lives and does seem to be going on forever.

      Marti…

      You couldn’t make it up could you ???…

      Could there be exemptions????

      What if your pencils have been self isolating in a pencil case???

      Maybe my pencils have not been mixing with pencils from other households…

      Could propelling pencils be immune???

      Are communal pencil sharpeners  passing it on???

      I am not making light of covid, it’s been devastating…..but COME ON!!

      Smiles, grace x

        Grace… you have an amazing wit!

        As an aside… I watched a movie titled ‘Wit’ with Emma Thompson! It was anything except wit… a harrowing tale of cancer and death… a real tear fest!

      I indeed used a sterile writing implement to cast my vote which I knew was covid free.

      A nice fresh BIC pen straight from the packet delivered by Amazon the previous week.

      Oh the joys of voting by post from home *giggles*

      Love Rachel

      No doubt there is official guidance somewhere as to what hardness and style of pencil is required. I have always been puzzled, why pencil. Is this so they can rub the votes out and substitute the right vote.

        Only in Pennsylvania, Georgia and Florida.  Ooops!  Sorry.

        I guess the reason is that pencils don’t run out of ink.   And they are cheaper?  Less likely to be nicked? And you can’t lick a biro, can you?

          No, just chew the end of the pen instead.
