I have a drawer full of pens in all colours and styles. Markers, highlighters, black, blue, holiday glitter. Enough red pens to last a lifetime. More pens and markers are scattered throughout my place, in little cups, in purses, on my desk. Some of them have stories, acquired at a conference, or bent out of shape ones from my chiropractor. I went through them recently and set aside all the dry ones for recycling at Staples. I have no idea why I keep buying more.
