Mr. Boingy Pen

So, I have this pen. But it's no ordinary pen. See, it's got a little spring on the top with a bouncing head. It smiles very widely and has a tuft of orange hair on the top. It has a little holder that it sits in so it stands upright. The holder has a suction cup so it can stand securely on the tabletop. Sounds cute, right? That's what I thought. But now I'm not so sure.

See, the other night we heard a funny sound. When we went out to the kitchen to investigate we found Mr. Boingy Pen on the floor. Securely suction-cupped to the floor and bouncing slightly on his spring, grinning from ear to ear. Eerie. And slightly disturbing.

While discussing it over breakfast, the hubby picked it up. It continued to grin straight ahead, and then slowly, oh so slowly, its head bobbed and turned so it was looking at me. What the heck?!?!? It did this several times.

Right now, as I write this, it is staring into the fish tank. If there are fish missing in the morning, or if anything about the tank is even slightly out of the ordinary, that pen may have to go.

Shhhh. Not too loud.
