Ahh. ... Was it a birthday present?

"So it does!" said Pooh. "It does write!"
"So it does!" said Piglet. "And it erases!"
"Doesn't it?" said Eeyore. "It writes and erases like anything."
"I'm very glad," said Pooh happily, "that I thought of giving you a Useful Eraser to Erase things."
"I'm very glad," said Piglet happily, "that thought of giving you something to Erase."
But Eeyore wasn't listening. He was wrting, and erasing again, as happy as could be....

That sounds like it may have some devious uses. And if it takes less than a few minutes, it would be a pain if you're carrying your notebook around in New England winters and all your erased and written-over mistakes reappear.
