Hello.... my name is Mindi, and I have an office supply problem.
To be more precise, I have a pen problem.
Kind of like this:
I've tried other kinds of colored pens, but none are as good as my good ol' Flair pens.
Of course, making charts requires a different kind of writing tool. For that, there's only one choice:
I'm stingy with my markers, though. I don't like the tips to get mushy, so I don't let anyone else use my "good" ones. I have a separate box that I loan out if someone asks. Is that wrong? I kind of think it is, but I doubt I'll change.
Also... I currently have at least 5 boxes of these in my storage cabinet at school.
Yes. I am a marker hoarder.
But really, I doubt I am alone in my obsession with quality office supplies. I know plenty of teachers who refuse to buy off-brand sticky notes or generic glue sticks. I know plenty of other pen hoarders, too.
Maybe that's one of the reasons we're teachers. We love pens and markers and colored pencils and cute paper and new notebooks.
So what's your favorite pen?
