Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

Scented erasers. Do they still make those?

Not really a supply, I guess, but I say mimeograph sheets. I miss mimeos.

Erasers. The ones that make for very neat erasing -- easy clean-up -- were also the ones that smelled the best. At least that's how it was when I was a kid. It wasn't a strong scent. And it smelled... clean.

For me, not only the scented erasers, but any new eraser.

The crayons have to be Crayola to smell right.

This isn't even a contest. It's definitely the Mr. Sketch scented markers that I used to have in 3rd grade. It's a miracle the teachers even let us use those things, looking back on it now. "You know what would be a good thing to teach our kids? To sniff markers all day!"

Not that the glue stick option was much better. Now that's just gross lol.

Red Rubber Eraser... or the smell of new shoes. I remember what my new shoes smelled like as a little kid...

Don't Panic.

Minty paste. Not at all good for actually adhering anything, but it had a lovely smell.
