Here is a collection of pens that I have tucked away in the car over the past year or so. All of them in fine working order.
Why so many pens?
Because there was this one time I needed a pen when I was in the car and NO PENS were to be found. I was appalled at the situation.
My solution was to deposit whatever pen I had in my pocket at the time and slip it into the compartment between the seats. I had no idea I had done this many, many times over the year. Yow!
Oh, I taped the little blue and yellow pieces of paper to some of the pens. It gives the date I first uncapped and used them.
