I've got a stock of pens and pencils. Some of which do write while others don't. I don't know why i cling to them. Some sentiment perhaps. I really don't know why i cling to them (maybe i don't, i can label this attitude of mine as simple ignorance). I always think of clearing them up, but think ahead of the times when they'll serve me (which hardly comes by). Hence, i retain almost all. I can see pens from my under-graduation days. And there's a certain storage area(read dumping area) where i store them. My mum reminds me to discard them often, but i refuse. I'm extremely lazy in this context.
However, there's one advantage, i find one almost everywhere, i don't have to carry one with me all around. But, i do wish to turn around.
