You know how you have that one favorite pen that fits just right in your hand and writes so smoothly? You get very attached to it....and then, much to your dismay it seems to grow legs and disappears. Be prepared by stocking up so you'll always have a backup.

Also for a stocking-stuffer last year I got a pretty "seven year pen" which is supposed to be able to write continuously for 7 years. Still works so far!

The other day someone asked to borrow my pen. I wasn't aware i shrieked "No!" Until after I realized they were giving me a strange look.

I found the best pens at Dollar Tree, of all places. Three to a package, they write smoothly and don't blot.

Bought 10 packages of them. Thirty pens that cost 33 cents apiece. Even if I lose one I don't cry long.

Although, I still hate loaning them out lol.

Nurse Eye Roll loves Dollar Tree pens too! My favorite are Papermate, black, medium point. I buy them at Walgreens. I'm on my second 10 pack in 3 months. I have like, 7 left. Where do they go?

I use Pilot G-2 10, bold. It's my favorite. I am very protective of my pen. If I lose it all h**l breaks loose and my co-workers know it. I'll have the entire clinic looking for my pen until it's found.
