During the last seminar today, the professor had one of his pens out, that I’d mentioned before: a blue Uni-Ball Eye Micro. As with almost all such pens, the silver coloring on the side had begun to tear away. For some reason, which annoys e, the ugly barcode never tears away unless you deliberately remove it.
The other lecturer in that class also had a pen, but because I was busy giving a presentation when I saw it, I didn’t pay it any attention (which is ironic given the topic of the seminar). Anyway, I believe it was red, because she was using it to assess me and the other three people who had to give surprise fifteen minute presentations on the last day. (There was only four people in that class, plus the two lecturers.)
