This afternoon as I was cleaning my apartment, I was suddenly overwhelmed by a scent memory: Blueberry Scented Marker. I don’t know where it came from, but I knew exactly what it was. I searched for the markers, and I was doubly pleased to find that they are called “Mr. Sketch”, a product that entices children to sniff markers is actually called “Mr. Sketch”. Hilarious.
This doesn’t fit into the regular subject matter of this blog, but I thought I would share this memory. As I understand, Mr. Sketch is still available, so maybe it’s just that I haven’t encountered the smelly markers since grammar school. I distinctly recall the scent of Black Licorice marker, especially.
