Most of the blue pens in the world don’t like me. I can never use a normal pen from the beginning right till the very last drop of its ink because after a few days of writing, sometimes even lesser than that, the blue pen just doesn’t work anymore.
I don’t see it in other people because the more the write, the more ink comes gushing out of the pen, making the words appear bolder. Mine fades away into the background.
I don’t know how many pens I’ve thrown away since school. I then learnt the magic of having an ink pen because I never have problems writing with an ink pen.
Now that I’m working, I had to rely on the supply of office stationery. In this case, it’s the brand Kilometrico. I have been using and throwing Kilometricos long before their retirement date because as what my sister would say, “Grace doesn’t know how to use a pen. I don’t know how she writes.” She would never understand why every pen that I come in touch with would die sooner than they should. I wonder why too.
Seeing each Kilometrico leaving me before it should, I decided to put a stop to it. Now, I’m using the pens I bring from home. They are pens that I’ve collected in events, fairs, hotels. They are a bit more tougher.
Using an ink pen in this case would be a bit wasteful because it would run out of ink in a matter of days (until the very last drop, of course!) since I’ll be writing as the calls come flowing in.
Do you and your pen work well together?
