Yesterday afternoon Karen Blaylock broke her pencil while writing her family’s grocery list, according to a source close to the situation.  It is not known if she sharpened the broken pencil or discarded it for a pencil in her pencil cup.  Due to the mishap, Mrs. Blaylock arrived late at the Stop & Shop Deli, so she was unable to taste the various free sampling of cheeses that were on display.
