The Perils of the Whiteboard

A Conversation

“Let me draw it out for you.”

“Careful, I used a Sharpie on the whiteboard.”

“Let me try it.”

“I’m just warning you.”

“Yep, it’s an erasable pen.”

“Are you sure?”

“I just wiped it clean.”

“Okay, but it’s a pain in the ass to get off.”

“It’ll be fine.”

“If you say so.”

“We have this big pie.”


“And we’ll color this slice red.”

“Uh huh.”

“And the rest blue.”

“There’s a lot more blue.”

“Actually, part of this should be green.”

“Just erase it and start over.”

“The blue won’t erase.”

“Used the Sharpie, huh”
