So I have a secret to share with you: I have a pretty serious obsession with office supplies. This is something I got from my mother, who is an enabler. Last year for Christmas she got me the greatest set of pens, the no-bleed sharpie pens. This year for Christmas she got me a post-it note dispenser and 2 6-packs of post-it notes. The list could go on, but the point is I LOVE office-supplies.
On my desk I have a bin for regular post-it notes and a post-it note dispenser, 3 buckets of multi-colored pens, mechanical pencils, paper clips, et cetera. Now, you might think this is a problem and that I should get professional help, and that is where you would be wrong. This week I was furthered enabled in my obsession, and I think it is a sign from God.
I never, ever go anywhere without my tool-kit: at least two writing utensils and a notepad. But this week, somehow I left my pencil-case at home. I found myself in class, with no writing utensil. Thankfully a friend of mine loaned me a pen, but I realized later, there was a purple pen sitting on the table next to me the whole time.
At first I thought this belonged to my friend, so I told her not to forget it. But the pen wasn’t hers, it had been abandoned. So, I decided to rescue it, and now, it is my new favorite pen. I truly do believe that this whole instance was providential. Purple is my favorite color, I needed a writing utensil, and God so happened to leave a purple pen, on my desk, in my time of need.
The point of this little tale is, if you have a deep and abiding love of office-supplies, feed it. And if you are the person from whom I stole this pen, you have great taste in office supplies.
