When I was a kid, the first pen I owned was a Bic. I thought it was marvelous! No longer was I relegated to writing homework assignments with a lowly No. 2 pencil. I was practically an adult because I had learned cursive and I was writing with a PEN!
Back in the day, Bic pens were only available (to me at least) in blue or black. I always chose blue. I like the color blue. It's the color of my eyes. The color of the sky. It's nice, friendly. Black is a little too business like for my taste. I like things nice and friendly.
As I mentioned in another post, I've been using Bic pens a lot lately, because I seem to be doing a lot of my (novel) writing by longhand, and then later typing up my pages. For Christmas, Mr. L slipped into my Christmas stocking a package of blue Bic pens AND a package of red ones, too.
Red pens have POWER. School assignments were always marked with a red pen. For years I edited with a red pen. But now ... eh, I found it's harder to see the red ink than the blue. (And I don't like the implications, either.) So the package of red pens still has 9 in it, while the blue package is empty. Those pens are scattered around the house--any where I might need to pick one up and immediately start writing.
Bic pens come in green, too, but I haven't seen any of them around in years. : (
The do come in other colors, and maybe it's just me, but I haven't found them to work as well as the plain old blue ones, mores the pity.
