Can't They Make A Pen That Writes?

If folks can put a man on the moon, why can’t they make a ball point pen that writes (every time)?

When I buy groceries and begin to write a check – the pen doesn’t write, or the ink skips where you can’t read the writing. It’s always been amazing to me, that the more simple a thing is, the more complicated man makes it.

Do you think that’s the reason why folks seemingly can’t understand the Bible — because they make something that is relatively simple (the gospel) complicated?

What Type Of Things Written

Like Ron, I still use the “pen to paper” motto as well. I use a 3×5 sheet of folded paper to write my grocery lists on; write my list of songs that I lead on the Lord’s Day; write the library class schedule down when I substitute in the public school libraries; jot down ideas and thoughts for future blog articles.

There’s always a pen in my shirt pocket

Well almost always, but I’m definitely a pen person. Actually, a picky pen person. I only use pens that don’t drag and will write on a variety of surfaces, but I’m still cheap. The pen I usually use is a Bic Atlantis. It meets all three criteria.

And Barb, I make lots of mistakes. I’ve just learned to live with them. A quick cross out and I move on.

I rarely use a pencil. The one exception is marking wood to cut. A pen does not mark well on wood and sometimes I need to erase a reference point.

Pilot Precise V5 Rolling Ball Extra Fine…

Pilot Precise V5 Rolling Ball Extra Fine (black, though I also use the other colors in the 4-pack for emphasis for marking my Bible, etc.). Great pens! I can’t remember the last time I used a pencil. Of course, I barely write anything by hand anymore.

The Pen Is Mightier Than The Pencil

My preferred writing instrument is the pen over the pencil, simply because of the permanency of the ink. The only time I actually write with a pen, is when I’m taking notes at work or when I’m jotting down ideas for an article. Like a lot of other folks in today’s digital world, I prefer the word processor over both pen and pencil for writing purposes.
