I’m so glad I … found this pen.
As I continue my season of gladness, I look at my hand and remember how grateful I am that I discovered its near-perfect match, wow, probably more than 10 years ago now.
Something about the way the Uni-Ball Jetstream Sport fit in my hand was more comfortable than any pen I’d ever owned. The ink flowed smoothly and I could write for a long time without my hand getting tired.
I don’t know if it’s the greatest pen ever made, but it’s the greatest pen for my individual hand.
Unfortunately I must be a very small market, because the next time I went to the office supply store, I found them in the clearance section. The clerk said that probably meant they were discontinued.
I did what any convert would do: I bought out the store. Then I went online and got a case.
That turned out to be an overreaction, because they were NOT discontinued, or if they were the company brought them back, because if you do a quick search you can find them still for sale.
But at least I have a supply that will last my lifetime, even if I manage to live as long as my dad did, which would be almost 30 more years for me.
Maybe it’s silly to spend words of gratitude on an inexpensive pen, or maybe that’s the whole point of searching for reasons to be glad: Some of the most amazing reasons are very simple and everyday.
