I’m trying to jumpstart my brain, and you, my unfortunate readers, are the victims of this exercise. The exercise is called: associations I have with pens, because, well, I’ll be listing associations I have with pens.
- gifts for bar or bat mitzvah.
- coffee stirrers.
- dowels to hold table together when you get desperate.
- status symbol.
- comfort object.
- luxury object.
- I love the way a smooth pen writes, and seems to just glide over the page. Conversely, I hate the way a low quality pen seems to scratch and catch with each stroke.
- something to hold pigs.
- Usually not particularly useful as a knitting needle, so what good are they anyway.
I do invite you to add any associations or stories of your own in the comments.
I am feeling slightly more awake. Not as much so as if I’d had caffeine (which I may, shortly), but not quite so brain dead as I have been, either. Tune in next time for a philosophical treatise on paper clips!
