I am afraid the Complaint Department is going to be open today. I had a dentist appointment just before writing this, so you’ll have to pardon me if I’m in the mood to grouse.
Here’s what is nagging at me: With the recent arrival of the Charged Green Lamy Al-Star, it seems that four out of my fifteen Al-Stars are some shade of green. Look at that.
There’s one blue. Three silvers — that lovely lilac in tenth position was called “Ice Blue,” but I consider it a silver. But even if you classify Ice Blue as a blue, there are only two blues. There are three in the red family, if like me you consider “Dark Purple” to be a burgundy; otherwise two in the red family. But four greens. And all unusual greens, too. Not even a British Racing Green.
