The $100 Pen
Pretty pricey, huh?
Actually, individually, these cost just a little over $3.00. Plus shipping, of course. But there's just something about me and the way I do things, that made these innocent little pens cost over $100.
I won't make a tiresome list of all of the pens I have purchased. The vast majority of these have been tossed. I do not need reminders of my inability to make wise choices. I will bring up the $60+ Rapidograph pen set I purchased and immediately regretted because I would like to get rid of it. If somebody wants to pay me $35 (including shipping) for the set, I'll send it out immediately. Perhaps I just don't know how to use these pens. I don't care. I'm tired of sending out a torrent of wrath each time I walk past them.
The studio garbage can is heavy with the bodies of worthless pens. I feel like a mafia don. If I'm displeased once, that's it. Into the river. No second chances.
I can write my little brains out with these pens on just about any surface. After just a few minutes of drying time, I can rub glue all over this paint with so smearing whatsoever.
Sounds pretty insignificant, right? There are people who have found their perfect life partner in far less time. The twinkling of the presidency in Obama's eye to the recent mid-year election is nothing time-wise compared to the time I have spent looking for this damn white pen. I'm pleased, and I want you all to be pleased with me.
Now, if the DecoColor people would just come out with an extra, extra fine line pen, I would be even happier.
