I’ve previously divulged that I have an office supply fetish. So the fact that I’m writing a post about my love for blue pens should come as no surprise.
And by fetish I mean that I have an unhealthy appetite for all office accoutrements. Not that I, in any way, get turned on by or with these things.
Back to my pens. I love them. So much.
And although I like pens with other color ink, my absolute favorite is blue. Dark blue.
But they can’t just be any pens.
I don’t like gel ink. Or roller balls. I say nyet to fountain or quill. And those little marker tips are like finger nails on a chalk board.
Gimme a nice, smooth blue ballpoint with a medium tip and I’m yours forever. Actually, I need more than one. No. Seriously. The more the merrier.
I have serious issues. I can’t walk past a stationery store or office supply store or even an office supply aisle at a convenience or grocery store without stopping to pick up a new pen to add to my obscenely unnecessary collection.
Also, please note that price doesn’t play a role in my affinity for my pen “pals.” I’m equally as attached to my more expensive, fancy writing instruments as I am to my cheapy ones.
And please don’t ask me to borrow my pen if you don’t plan to return it. It causes me a great deal of distress. I will eye you like a hawk until my beloved is back in my possession.
And if you happen to abscond with it under my watchful eye, I will hunt you down and kill you.
Ok. So maybe I won’t actually snuff you out. But believe you me, I will most certainly want to. And it will forever remain etched in my memory that you are a thief of the vilest kind who can never henceforth be trusted.
Do you have an unnatural love of pens? If so, do you have a proclivity for a certain kind of pen? Leave a comment below!
