Cool Thing of the Month

Pen Again

Pen Again
Although it certainly exists, I've never featured a better mouse trap as my Cool Thing of the Month. However, there IS a better way to apply ink to paper. While it won't rid your home of rodents, a *better* pen may solve some of your other problems. There are times when you simply need to do a lot of good old fashioned writing on paper. Particularly if you've gotten used to a keyboard for your wordsmithing tasks, an extended session with a pen and legal pad can lead to nasty hand cramps and other pen-related ailments like "mush-finger" (OK, I just made that up.) That's why you should reach for the Pen Again. The grip is truly stressless and natural. If that's not enough for you, the nib retraction mechanism is peculiarly appealing (although please be advised that the click-reset-click-reset sound you'll undoubtedly be making will be highly annoying to your spouse or roommate.). $3.99 at www.PenAgain.com
