whenever i'm using a pencil, i'm afraid that i'll try to erase something, the eraser will pop off, and i'll be left scraping metal against my paper instead. just thinking about how that would sound and what it would feel like in my hand makes me want to implode. the thing is, it happens even if i'm positive that the eraser is on tight, or even if i'm using a plastic mechanical pencil. i've taken to using pens instead, but now i'm beginning to be afraid that the tip of the pen will break or snap off and i'll end up in the same situation. cue all-over shivers and nausea.
