Pocket knife

Today there was a situation in my class. There was a new projector cable, but it was coiled and tied with those zip tie things. I asked my students if anyone had a pocket knife (having lost my own at an airport this summer). My students stared blankly at me and shook their heads. Shoot, if I’d been in Texas, it wouldn’t have been a strange question, and I wouldn’t have had to walk all over trying to find a pair of scissors because someone would have had one. I guess a pocket knife is going on my Christmas wish list.
