my electric sharpener has been out of batteries for about 2 years now.
i remember being ambitious a few months ago only to find out we didn't have the right kind to refill it.
i thought about being ambitious again last night,
but it is likely that we are still out of the same batteries we were out of 6 months ago.
as i remember it wasn't double A or triple A.
it was some fancy letter beyond B that is square.
i cannot remember.
and probably with the amount of time i have spent writing about these batteries i could have looked, checked, and put them on my list three times.
so instead of looking i'll just sharpen them by hand.
