The baby sitters club books! I loved these when I was a kid! Read them all.my sister had the Babysitters little sister books. My girls are now reading the little sister books we found at a book sale recently.
Old school pencil sharpener, I remember dreading to get up and sharpen my pencil in class. Everyone looks up and watches ya and then you take the pencil out and have to turn it a different way to get the other side sharp as well.
