I’ve never entirely understood the whole give-a-graduate-a-pen thing. I mean, when I graduated from high school I could barely remember where I’d put my homework, and pens are a lot smaller. By the time I graduated from college I was slightly better, but not much.
Come to think of it, I really can’t keep track of much of anything. Have any of you seen my kids…?
Anyway. Lots of folks like to give a fancy-schmancy pen as a graduation gift. Okay, have at it. Just don’t spend a lot, because then if it gets lost that’d be a tragedy. Spend a little, and when it gets lost it’ll just be annoying.
How about a $10 Waterman pen from Buy.com? I sure can’t see spending the “recommended” $100 on it, but for $10 it’s pretty snazzy.
