I had to take a multiple choice test yesterday. Like most mulitple choice tests, you had to darken the oval of your chosen answer with a No.2 pencil. That was fine and I used my classic yellow pencil I blogged about earlier.
When the proctor was reading the instructions, he said we were to use No.2 soft-lead pencils and not to use a fountain pen. I smiled to myself as I would have loved to use a FP on the test if it had erasable ink. (Do they have erasable ink for fountain pens? I have seen it for ballpoints.)
I found the test instructions to be charming and I bet most people in the room had never used a fountain pen in their lives.
