Attached to a pen - an emotional review
I have found the best pen ever. I love it. Have you ever become emotionally attached to a pen? This is my first time. The night before we left for Philly I was using this pen, then I turned around and it had disappeared! No one knew where it was; No one had used it. Sure! Then, on Tuesday my oldest pulled out her sketch book and started drawing. With my pen!!! Don't worry, she surrendered it without a fight. I was so happy to have my pen back I used it right away. Then this morning when I gathered the handful of pens that Pentel sent me to review it was missing again! I knew my husband had been using it the night before and I feared for my pen! I was so mad! What did he do with it?! Where was it?! I had heard him mutter, "This pen does't work," and though I knew he must have been talking about a different one, this irrational, emotionally-attached-to-a-pen part of my brain was scared that he might have thrown it away! And I had already taken out the trash! I nearly called him, but I managed to restrain myself, knowing he'd be home for lunch within an hour. It was in his pocket. Whew!!!
I usually pay no attention to the brand name of pens, but after using Pentel I think they've won a loyal customer. I'd like ten more of the EnerGel just in case I lose it (or someone in my house steals it) again!
