    ...a pencil or pen? Or stylus if you want to be a jerk.

    I had no idea that was the origin of “Mnemonics”.

    I do not apply to any of these options. I was born with a hypoplastic hand and my index finger on my right hand (that I write and pick with) is practically useless. Long story short... My index finger and middle finger were once stuck together before I had an operation to get bone webbing removed. I write with my thumb and middle finger, the index just sort of supports the whole operation.

    Perhaps the pen is Festuvus-themed.

    unless you are a pole, then a pole does all the writing.

    Common family name for southern Poles. Less to the east. Unless they dropped the "ski"
