My work shirts don’t have pockets, so I’ve taken to clipping my pen to my badge lanyard. Recently, that caused me to lose one of my favorite pens, when the pen unscrewed from the cap and disappeared.
Today, it was my Lamy Safari. The cap pulls off, and is sturdy enough to survive my daily routine. But not the barrel. It unscrewed and dropped, leaving me with the cap and the guts of the pen, but no barrel.
I think my journey with fountain pens is over. And this makes me sad.
