I have five yellow Safaris? Yes, I have five yellow Safaris. I really had no idea.
The truth is, yellow pens are not exactly necessary in my life, since I never use yellow ink. Let’s say I own 9,043 bottles of ink. Admittedly, that’s a rough estimate; the actual number might be higher (cough). But I do know that, of those roughly 12,000 bottles, exactly zero contain yellow ink. It’s not exactly legible, at least not to me.
But I still like the yellow Safaris. And that photo puts a smile on my face. The cute Line Friends Safari is especially adorable. Though it lives in a box. Which I had to search for. Because it was in a storage box. In the basement. We’re talking deep storage. I really only use the regular yellow Safari.
The funny thing is, as shocked as I am by the breadth of my yellow Safari ownership, I know that Lamy has made more than five different yellow Safaris. There’s a lighter yellow with black clip for sure. And there probably are other special edition Safaris in yellow: I think I’ve seen some with logos. I just don’t buy the ones with logos. Or the rare and expensive ones.
Rest assured that I am okay with not having every yellow Safari. In fact, I’m thrilled.
It might mean a tiny bit of sanity prevails. But you know me better. It really means: more room for my blue pens!
Hey. If I put a few more of these in the storage box in the basement, wouldn’t that mean … there’s room for that blue Pelikan M205?!
