Who Ate My Pen?

Dear Diary,

Something atrocious happened to me and I'm going to need to seek counseling in order to cope with this.  During the Christmas break I could not find a pen of mine.  It was my "1 Year of Service" pen that I received from Downey Savings.  I like this pen not because it was a gift, but because it writes really well.

I point out that it was a Downey Savings pen because I am the only one in the office that has such a pen.  I'm not talking about some generic Bic pen.  So when someone uses the pen it should be obvious to them that it is not theirs because they did not work at Downey for one year.

Fast forward to yesterday (2.5 weeks later) I blurted out that I'm still upset my pen was gone.  I'm an overly organized person so I knew that someone took my pen.  Folks in the office did not believe me until we found the pen.

We found it in the conference room destroyed.  An anonymous adult -- whom I'm now going to call a child -- ate my pen.  The rubber grip has teeth marks all over it and has even been torn from the chewing.

Are you kidding me people?  I've got four kids all seven years and younger and they put stuff in their mouth all the time.  Do you know why they put stuff in their mouth?  BECAUSE THEY'RE CHILDREN!

No one has confessed to eating my pen so I made a mini-poster and taped it to my wall for all to see and, hopefully, to bring public shame to some individual.

It says, "Who ate my pen?  You're nasty!"  Here's a picture.
