CLEARLY, I Need an Intervention

These were in my purse.  My purse, mind you, not my briefcase.

Ten pens.  Something is deeply wrong with me.

  1. A woman can not have too many good pens.

  2. That doesn’t really seem strange to me. It’s the women who never have even one pen in their purse that confuse me. :)

    The fact that most of them are the same type is a good sign. You are a person of habit, not a pen klepto.

    Dear fellow pen whore:
    Yeah, that’s about right! And you’ve got ones that are at least a joy to write with!

    If I had a purse, I would have at least that many pens in it. There is nothing worse than needing a pen and not being able to find one.

    How many of those pens actually write?

  7. I hide my pens from the rest of my family like a miser, and they usually end up in the front pocket of my handbag…perfectly understandable behaviour…I like to have at least 5 or 6 on the go, you never know!

  8. There is nothing wrong with you! I wish I had ANY pen in my purse. The purse is a place to put mulitiple pens because a) you always need one for something and b) people like me around you need to borrow them!

  9. Oooh, the fancy kind! :-)

    I’ve got about as many pens in my purse, too.

  10. Aaaah, a woman after my own heart. I am a pen hoarder as well.

    I still don’t get the purse thing.

    You have a lot of pens. Do you have a notepad or index card to write on? What good is one without the other? I sometimes write things in the dust on my dashboard of the car but that only works for a few weeks. Notepad and pens, wallet, knife, sometimes some Altoids..that’s what’s in my pockets. Ten pens? Maybe in my backpack but never in my pockets.

  13. You Guys, the Pilot V pens are, hands-down, my all-time favorite. I buy the razor point, extra fine in packs of ten. Love. Them.

    I don’t always have paper, Laurie, but there’s always the back of a hand.

    Auntie, I never got the purse thing until a few years ago. I kind of like having some important stuff with me all the time, though the wallet often comes out with me and the rest of the purse stays in the car.
