Miracle

I like Sharpie pens. They are great for writing on CDs, and writing on just about anything. I have one mini Sharpie Pen keychain. It is a shorter version of the fat fine tip Sharpie, but has an extra piece on the cap, so you can hook it onto a key ring.

Personally, I don't think a Sharpie belongs on the keychain, but I do like it for its convenient pocket size. And as luck would have it, my Sharpie took the plunge into the laundry machine thins weekend.

After taking out my clothes, I saw the Sharpie, lying on the bottom of the washing machine drum. I took the Sharpie, with a million thoughts racing through my mind. The pen must have leaked, in the machine, or at the very least, it probably doesn't write anymore.

I took the Sharpie out of the drum, pulled off the cap, and tried to write on my hand. The pen worked. Looking through the laundry after it came out of the dryer, I was amazed that not a single item of clothes was ruined by my Sharpie.

It's a modern day miracle.

I've seen half a dozen postings of yours about Sharpies and I've never seen one!

I must make a mental note to pick one up next time I'm in the US...

You can use them under water also...Even tho I'm not sure why you would need to.I doubt anyone is going to be writing a book report in the swimming pool,and if while writing that report in the house,the house becomes flooded,I don't think anyone is going to be thinking about continuing the report.But,it's still cool!
