Back in the day when folks played parlor games (even if they didn’t have a parlor), there was often a particular question that would come up as part of a game. “If you had to give up one of your senses, which one would you choose?”

That choice occurred to me the other day as I was driving down the road and saw a drawing of a pumpkin on a billboard. For some reason, the sight of that pumpkin stirred my other senses of smell, taste, and even feel. But those were not what I thought of. I thought about crayons.
