Pencils. For the 5 boxes I will take to rural schools. I went to the “chino” nearby. Pack of 5 for 85 cents. No, too expensive. How much if I buy 1000 pencils? You’ll call tomorrow? OK, here’s my number. 12 cents a pencil. 30 cents a pencil. Why is Europe twice the price of the USA? Aliexpress, the Chinese Amazon: 16 cents a pencil. Getting better.

Then the girl from the “chino” called. 6 cents a pencil! With an erasor tip! It’s a deal.
