Anything of importance must be written in ink these days, which is a shame since we prefer the look and feel of a classic pencil. At least we'll be able to trick ourselves a bit with these Wood Ballpoint Pens ($6, set of 3). Replacing pencil graphite with blue ink, the pens-in-disguise allow you to write checks and sign tax forms. Unfortunately, the eraser has no effect on the ink, but that just gives you extra permission to chew on the eraser instead just like you did as a child.
