I Found Your Pen — Paper Mate InkJoy

I Found Your Pen is the first in a a new series here. Occasionally, I find pens when I’m out and about. Most of the time, these are pens I would not otherwise purchase on my own. I thought it would be fun to start reviewing them.

I found the Paper Mate InkJoy in the grass in front of our house. It was fairly dirty. It looked like it had been there a while. Likely stepped on and mowed over for a few days. In fact, I almost mowed over it myself — I thought it was a stick at first. That said, a bit of soap and water on a rag cleaned it right up.

This pen is rather basic. Your standard disposable office pen with a rubberized grip, silver clip, and clicky thruster. The Ink flows a bit too well and the ball is a bit too smooth. This makes for a very slippery writing experience. Thus, this is a pen I’d probably not use much. I need a bit more friction and control than this pen provides.

I may "accidentally" leave it behind somewhere the next time I’m out. Perhaps after signing a slip at a restaurant or a check at a bank. Maybe some server or bank teller would enjoy having an extra pen around. Who knows? It might even find itself in the hand of someone who will love it far more than I ever will.
