My intuition was nagging me to stop at the hardware store on the way to the farmers’ market. Really! I didn’t want to stop at the store. I was already late that Sunday morning. The market was closing in an hour. Still, I caved into my inner compass and stopped at the hardware store to find a solution to my colored pencil problem. I needed a way to sharpen my pencils that didn’t break the pencil or the lead.
Should I say that luck was with me or should I say that my intuition knew what it was talking about? The person who helped me just happened to have a son who loved to draw with pencils and he recommended the same pencil sharpener that his son used. It was $3 and was locked in a case so that people wouldn’t steal it!!
I made my purchase and tested the new pencil sharpener as soon as I returned the farmers’ market. Sure enough it worked!!! Thanks intuition!!
