You know how it is, when you're going to an informational company meeting? And you don't want to bring a notebook or anything, because you don't want it to be in your way, having to balance it on your knees during the meeting? Especially since you think there will be snacks, so you don't want to be juggling your notebook and your muffin and your drink? Plus, you're pretty sure that there will be handouts, so all you need is a pen in your pocket? But you feel a tiny bit guilty showing up with just a pen, in case you do want to write something down but there's nothing to write on? And you're afraid people will laugh at you if you write on your hand? So you take a single postit note, just in case, because that will easily fit in your pocket? And you doubt the meeting will have more material than will fit on the postit anyway? Then you wrap the postit note around your pen, sticky-side toward the pen, and put them both in your pocket? Then when you're actually at the meeting, sitting there with your handout (you knew there'd be a handout), your muffin, and your Sprite (because they were out of Diet Coke), the pen starts kinda jabbing your hip? So you pull it out of your pocket, and the postit is all folded and wrinkled and unwinding from the pen, and it looks ridiculous, and you're annoyed that you bothered to bring either of them, because there's nothing worth writing down anyway? You know how that is?
