We all have them.
The ubiquitous pen cup.
Mine is a nifty ceramic cup that I bought in Mexico City, near the Aztec pyramids of Teotihuacan. But that’s another story …
Tell me, are you’re just like me, or am I a bit to obsessive?
You see, even though I have several nice pens to choose from in this convenient cup on desk, there is only one pen that I really want to use. So, I will paw through the contents of this cup until I find the one pen.
It may have something to do with being left-handed. Finding a good pen for left-handed writing is not as easy as it seems. You righties out there have the luxury of pulling your pen across the paper. Since we lefties push our pens, a sharp fine pointed pen will often dig into the paper, making for very poor penmanship and a higher level of frustration.
A proper left-handed pen, in my opinion, will glide smoothly over the page when pushed.
My current favorite? Pilot G-2 10pt (Medium), blue ink. I accept them as gifts, just so you know.
I know I should just get rid of the other pens in the cup and only stock the G-2. That just seems too wasteful to me.
Can I send them to you?
