I look at the nice colourful pens in their fancy stand, displayed for all to see. Flashy things add to the aesthetic appeal.

Then there are pins.

Pins are cheap boring and functional. No one looks at pins except to use them. Great stress busters too. You can bend them into any shape you like, twist them any which way, shove them into a cheap disposable cup like the cheap disposable things that they are, and toss them out whenever you feel like cleaning house.

I look at the termination letter in my hand. Yup, I’m a pin.
