In our house, almost daily, is a conversation that goes something like this:
Me: “what did you do with my pen?”
Man: “pen, what pen?”
Me: “THE pen, the pen here in the kitchen.”
Man: “I didn’t take your pen.”
(in most cases I find the pen in some strange place where he obviously left it – I would never leave a pen in a strange place…)
So what does one do when people keep swiping your pen?
You know, THE kitchen pen. The one that belongs in the kitchen.
I tried buying a huge pack of really cheap pens and just pulling one out every time they disappear and you know what, I RAN OUT of pens from the really cheap pack.
So, I think I’m going to get some of those logo pens that businesses get with their name on them.
Instead of a name, however, I’m going to put sayings like this:
- This is a girl’s pen.
- I am a girl because I use this pen.
- Touching this pen is like wearing pantyhose.
Not sure if it will work, but I’m desperate.
Someone keeps swiping THE kitchen pen!
