Pens and Yellow Pads
February 27, 2022
I decided to take a household inventory of pens. Why?
Well, Peter believed you can’t have too many pens. He also insisted that they be the kind of pens where the ink smudges and the tops get disconnected, especially when in the pants pocket of the user.
Peter also may have been the largest consumer of yellow legal pads in history. Every time he had a new thought, he started a new pad. So, I also have a large inventory of started yellow pads. I am rather fond of them.
I write on my laptop. I use a pen to write a check (rarely) and birthday cards (semi-rarely). I own 82 pens. Thanks to Peter, it looks like my descendants will never have to buy one.
