Today, in science class, my students were using microscopes to examine onion cells and they were drawing scientific drawings of them. Suddenly, something caught my eye and I looked over and I saw Ttocs standing ontop of his chair with a metre stick in his hand. The opposite end of the metre stick was resting ontop of the hanging fluorescent light.
I said, "Ttocs! What are you doing?"
He said, "I'm trying to get my pencil."
I said, "Where is your pencil?"
He said, "It's on the light."
I said, "WHY is your pencil ontop of the light?"
He floundered, "...it accidentally got up there."
Those pencils CAN be tricky.
