I have a fetish with pens, and being a writer, that is understandable. I prefer gel pens, but any pen that writes smoothly is a quick favorite. Sadly, I have even resorted to snitching pens from friends and family. 😦
I am also protective of my pens, and if someone asks to borrow one, I will either hawk over them until I get it back, or loan them one of the most junky, cheapest, or almost dead ones that I have if they are the type of person likely to not give them back. Like my husband.
I also hate it when people chew on them, or snap the little grippy tab off of them. Again, like my husband. Once they do that, they may as well keep them. Which is why I give them the least favorite of the lot.
