Lets start with the bold point pen...and I will stop you right there. Why is there a bold point pen?? Just make it a marker for cryin' out loud! Who in their right mind would knowingly choose to write a document of any kind with a bold point PEN??? A toddler perhaps. Or a very near-sighted person. Give the kid some crayons and the near-sighted person a laptop with bold extra large print and call it a day.
Moving on to the medium point writing utensil. Now, in my experience I feel like I have run into more people who shy away from the medium points and go right for the fine point. So, Why, I dare ask, are medium point pens the easiest ones to find in A) Bulk packaging B) the cheapest prices and C) pretty much everywhere a pen is sold?? Are retailers, manufactures, etc that worried that a person will impale themselves with a fine point pen that they are willing to sacrifice the consumer's right to pure and utter scribing happiness, merely to avoid a lawsuit?? Come on now!! I know we may not be the brightest species on the planet, but at least let us enjoy a good "pen and flow." (I may have to coin that phrase.)
Once again, I digress...enter fine point pen. As mentioned earlier, I am finding more and more people enjoying the flow and crispness of the fine pointed writing friend. I was and am still occasionally in this group that enjoys a good Uniball Fine Point. (No, not Bic.) However, once again, shout out to good ol' Pops who has shown me the true meaning of writing bliss with the Uniball MICRO point. I remember growing up finding these completely black cased pens all over the house. The cap would be off and pen on the counter if Mom had last used it. She doesn't like to put caps back on pens...not sure what it is. Or the cap chewed like it was someone's last supper if my sister had it last. And of course, no cap at all if little bro had it in his possession for anymore than 5 seconds. I don't know if it was the level of respect I gave Dad or the pen that made me return it in its pristine condition to its natural home on Dad's desk. If you enjoy the feel and comfort of a fine point pen, I'm telling you...try the Micro. It will change your world.
I will leave you one last item to discuss around this topic. Why, oh WHY does your waitress (or waiter) ALWAYS have the best pen??
