I just checked my desk drawer. I must have over a hundred pens in there. They seem to proliferate. Sometimes I think they actually breed! Every time I turn around I have a new pen in my pocket. The odd thing is -- I haven't actually bought one in at least 20 years!

I have a pen marked U.S. Government in my drawer. I just checked it. Despite the fact that I have never used it, it doesn't work. Ironic, isn't it? I suppose I could whip out a lighter, light the bottom and try to force it to work, but I find it better to just throw it out.

I have about 20 Bic pens. They are everywhere.

I have pens from Bally's Health Club, Mama's Car Parts, Bedoin Real Estate, Century 21 and several from places I can't read anymore. The interesting thing is, I have never been to these places. I work out at LA Fitness but I don't have a pen from there.

Where do these pens come from? I don't remember anyone giving them to me! I must have picked them up from some place but I don't remember!

I also have a lead pencil. Don't ask me where it came from. It's a .5 mm Pentel P205. Maybe that means something to someone.

From now on I'm going to try to remember where I get my pens from. Meanwhile, I always have plenty of pens. Except when I need one.
