I came across this post where someone discovered that their favorite pen was discontinued and had to find an alternative one...I don't know why but it never occurred to me that other people had this preference. For the last 17 years I've had a favorite pen...only one type which I always end up drifting back to, the Pilot Precise V-5  ; below...apparently the #1 Rolling Ball pen in America, I'm so common!

Stupid post I know but it just never entered my head that:

1. this was quite such a preference for me. I mean, 17 years, the most committed relationship I've ever had is to a pen!

2. other people had similar thoughts.

Oh, and for the record I'm currently using a Muji Black Ink Aluminium Barrelled Rollerball (great, very fine pen and it looks uber-geeky)...because the 12 Pentel Precise Pens I had in my office have been 'relocated'...Oh, and I occasionally veer to a Fisher Bullet Space Pen for a few months; I've lost about 10 of these things...but being able to keep a pen in your pocket which never leaks and is really compact was too compelling when I was on the road.
