    Default break your crayons

    Another new phrase for me. Has anyone heard of this?
    i guess it would be used like this,"don´t listen to her, she is trying to break your crayons."

    Default break your crayons?

    Emily, where are you hanging out? I've never heard this, and I'm not sure I'm ready to back it by incorporating it into my everyday usage. I'll have to mull it over. Thanks though!
