I am a kleptomaniac. I have a collection about a hundred pens around my house. Some are pretty lame, but some are executive quality. I am the reason stores have starting to put strings on their pens. Some tape big spoons which I prefer because it is like they are saying to me, “I know you don’t really mean to do it.” It is also the reason companies and organizations put their name and info on pens. They know the pens will be lifted; they might as well make the most of it and get a little advertising out there. If it makes you feel any better about me, I also lose pens. I keep putting pens in my purse out of the bucket that sits on my counter and they eventually disappear from the purse. I don’t know where they go but I hope they fall into the hands of people who need them. It would make me feel better, like a Robin Hood of pens.
