Friday 55 & Da Count-Leaving an Impressions


It's true you weren't my first.
I had others before you.
One was long and sleek,
gliding effortlessly.
Another was thick and heavy
resting in my hand.
Some were useless,
leaving nothing but a mess.
Some were stolen away
by those who would use them
and lose them.
Keep your hands off my favorite pen.

Just a bit of fluff this week.  Everyone at work seems to have a favorite pen and we all seem to have our own hiding places for them.  I may have control of the front desk but I share it with another girl and at some point during the day everyone comes to the desk...and many times my pen goes missing.


In something completely unrelated to writing implements I'm counting my mom this week.  I've counted her before but I'm counting her again because her mama radar went off and she showed up unannounced at my house when I was at my wit's end...ready and willing to do whatever might need doing to try to ease some of the strain around here the last couple of weeks.  I'm a lucky daughter.

I have to write my name very Tiny and attach some scotch tape around the damn pen!
Loved your 55 Trini...
Thanks for playing, Thanks for the Yahtzee/Bingo/Euchre opportunity, and have a Kick Ass Week-End

This happens to me all the time! I'm forever searching for my favorite pen only to find it in the lab coat pocket of a colleague who has sticky fingers. Great job!

hedgewitch said...

Argh! I hate that. I went into a sandwich shop here the other day and they had taped plastic forks and spoons to their pens at the cash register. It looked dorky, but apparently it works.

Congrats on having a great mom, too.

there is nothing like holding your pen in your just fits...

Glad that your mama was there when you needed her the most

I love the way pens are given personality so that people wont take them ( and they still vanish)

Logophile said...

mamas are the bomb, eh?

I hate losing my favorite pen of the moment. I can't seem to keep from losing them though.

Watch that pen Michelle. It probably cost your firm all of 20 cents each :-) - Dave

Olivia said...

I guess I have a fetish for watches n pens- besides the shoes, handbags... cosmetics... it goes on basically!

I've gotten ahold of some bad pens lately, so yes, a good pen is something to hold on to!

Cricket said...

My favorite pen is a pencil... Dixon Ticonderoga #2.

Still, hands off, kids!

Hooray for Mom. Have a great weekend.

Craig said...

Good thing you included the picture of the pen, or I might've gotten confused. . . ;)

That mama radar is pretty amazing stuff. So glad for you that your mom has a high-quality installation. . . ;)

Mama Zen said...

My dog keeps stealing my pens!

lecram said...

LOL... I used to have a "secret pen" too.

Moms are always good counts. Glad her radar went off for you when you needed it the most.

My boss has twice tried to walk off with it~!

Belinda said...

A fun 55!
Dr. Seuss with 6 colors. A memento from my son's last birthday. I'm sure someone else will wind up with it sooner or later, but for now, it's my favortie.

Belinda said...

Ooops, I left a completely different link! Sorry.

Steve Isaak said...
