Why Would I Have a Pen?

Pen Collection

In my purse I carry things that I have deemed essential:  1-wallet, 1-lipstick, 1-tube of Carmex, 1 feminine product, 1-makeup sponge and my BB headphones that I use for my Skyrocket.  That’s it.
Nothing more.  Nothing less.  No pen. No pencil. No paper, tape, staples, eraser or Kleenex.  It’s not a backpack.

No tape measure.  No screwdriver.  No flashlight, hammer, pliers, electrical tester, level or utility knife.  It’s not a tool box.
I actually know two women who probably have at least two of those items in their purse right now.  And that’s fine. For them.
However, I only carry the items I have deemed essential.
No pen.

This may come as a shock to some, but I’ve never been in a situation where I found myself saying, “If I only had a pen!”  Sure, I’ve been asked by others whether or not I had a pen they could borrow.  When I reply, “No.”, their response and the look of disbelief is quite comical.  It always leaves me asking the same questions:

1.  Why would I have pen in my purse for you to use?
2.  Why are you so upset?
3.  Why don’t you have a pen?

I’m Just Sayin’…(Damn!)

      I agree. I have a friend who has a funny saying: Failure to plan on your part, does not constitute an emergency on my part. It always makes me laugh. Thanks for reading.

    Fun! I carry a small purse for the same reason. They just take one look at it and ask someone else. It holds my phone, wallet, migraine meds, lip stuff AND A PEN. It is my precious and NO I won’t share it.

      I don’t blame you for not sharing, maybe the next time they’ll be more prepared in anticipating their OWN needs. Thanks for commenting : D

      Agreed, whatever you need to write down you can add to your phone and if you really need to sign something there will probably be a pen available for you to use. Thanks for commenting! 🙂
