Im not sure where the pens and pencils go until they magically show up in all the wrong places. But I have a theory. There must be a parallel universe where misappropriated writing implements go while awaiting their final assignment to the floor or the couch cushions or the bottom of the washing machine having fallen out of a pair of newly ink-stained blue jeans.
Its the same universe where lurk the matching socks to all those strays that emerge from the dryer as orphans.
If I could find the key to unlock that universe, Id be wealthy man. Id open a store at the mall and call it Oh there it is
Fat chance of me unlocking that universe though. I cant even find my car keys.
