A to Z Blogging


The rubber is an unblemished white when I pick it up. Its surface is smooth and it is firm yet pliable. The touch of it between the fingers leaves a strange coated feeling, but it isn’t something that can seen. The act of rubbing this malleable shape over the surface of a piece of paper allows it so crumble slightly and the shape to slowly change. This inch long rectangle has the magic ability to make words and marks on a page disappear. Its sticky molecules grab the pencil graphite and pull it away from the top of the page.

  1. A weird thing for me but I have never really finished an eraser!
    Like it would have gotten small but by then I would have lost it or it would have been stolen!
    Is it just me? Or has this also happened to you!?

  2. “magic ability to make words and marks on a page disappear”…just perfect! And not all erasers are created equal..some just aren’t “right”. In Australia we grew up calling them rubbers. That’s changed as it’s alternate meaning has become more usual.
