"More than is necessary, normal, or desirable; immoderate."
I have a lot of ink pens. A LOT. A whole LOT.
It all started with this pen from Legoland Windsor in England.
We were in the gift shop at the end of our visit and I wanted a souvenir...but what's a mom of three (at the time) going to do with Legos?? Then I found the pen and decided it would be a useful souvenir. The price wasn't bad either. I actually think that Hollywood, California pen might have been my first, but it wasn't till Legoland that I decided to start collecting them.
Some might call it eXcessive. But pens are useful. No?
Told you I had A LOT. I always have one in my purse. They come in handy when you need to jot something down and it's fun to remember the place they came from.
I have 30 floating action pens from all over the world.
I have 30 pens from England and Scotland. Oh, one is actually from Ireland. It was given to me by a friend.
I have 12 pens from Italy. Five from Switzerland. Three from Germany. A few from Paris.
I have pens from Disneyland.
I have pens from California, Washington DC, Baltimore, Las Vegas, Oregon, Washington and Arizona.
Then there's the pile of random hotel pens.
What do you think? eXcessive? Or useful? I'm just gonna stick with useful. :)
