All Weather Pen No. 37
A company called Rite in the Rain makes a pen – gifted to me by Babby – called the All Weather Pen No. 37! When Babby gave it to me I was intrigued and grateful, but curious as to how it would be applicable to my lifestyle. The pen is marketed towards adventurers of all kind – campers, military personnel and possibly diving instructors. I’ll be honest, the only situation I imagined being able to use the pen as marketed was if – God forbid – I was trapped in a sinking car and needed to draft a frantic, “FREAKING HELP ME!!!” note. Given that’s unlikely happen – thanks to advice (for humor purposes only) gleaned from my tear away Worst Case Scenario calendar – I opted to test drive the pen under decidedly less dire circumstances. I grabbed a Pad N°12 Rhodia and a spray bottle. According to ad copy for the All Weather Pen No. 37, “These all-weather pens write on wet paper and upside down in temperatures from -30F to 250F.” I decided to embark on my experiment and went on the back porch at the middle of the night after waiting for the internet to tell me it was 45° outside. I tore a page out and sprayed it down with water. Then I wrote! Oh snap! The bad boy actually wrote. It was pretty exciting. I guess I don’t need to cook beans over an open flame or join the Marines in order to be adventurous! I love technology!
