Things I Love: Vol – Pens
Written by Danny P Ocean on February 21, 2012
One taste I have acquired over the last few years is the taste for good writing instruments; pens. I received my first real pen about 10 years ago as a gift. And from that point there was no looking back. I let the masses have there bics, while I pull out the finer joints.
I know some of you maybe thinking, hey why spend so much on a pen that someone will steal from you. Ah-ha homie, that is where you are wrong. First when you have a nice pen like the Montblanc StarWalker fountain pen you are more hesitant to lend it to someone. And if you happen to let the dude at happy hour use your pen to write his number, he will be more inclined to return it to you. Why? Because he can tell that you have an appreciation for the finer things I life.
I also like to sport different pens according to the dress code for the day. Earth tones call for me to pull out my gold-plated joint, while silver will do for my greys and blacks. It isn’t anything more than the perfect little touch to your outfit to let everyone know that you pay attention to the little details.
Now I must let you Moguls know that I am not saying that you need to purchase the most expensive pen sets that you see at the store. But you must graduate from the 10 for $1 packs. A simple $10-$20 pen will do the trick. Not only will it make you look good,but you will fell good every time you whip it out.
