    Well as crazy as it may sound I managed to find mass amounts of sharpies. I bought over 100. I am never able to find pens around my house. Pencils are a bit easier to find. My son has Aspergers. So his thing is spinning pens. What's odd is I can never find them. I know or hope he isn't eating them. I highly doubt it, maybe they are hidden in places. So I just bought massive amounts in hopes I will be able to hide a stash, although i have yet to successfully stash away any. Because the second I take it out to use it , he takes it. I rather him not spin the pencils while walking around because I don't want him to get hurt. Sharpies seem to be spinning of choice. But he will spin just about anything that shape he can get his hands on.
    I just wonder if people are going to think I am crazy buying so many? I mean I do get a look when buying a chart half full of just sharpies. [​IMG]

    I need them to write on my eggs if he can just leave me one [​IMG]

    Tie them to stuff... Don't know how, exactly.. but tie those pens down!
    Hide most of your stash in different locales he wont think to look for them in.. like your underwear drawer... and tie the ones you have out, down. Maybe you could use a small drill bit and put a hole through the bottom of the pen? Then tie it down with some steel cable!
    It's not hard to keep a pen away from me.. if someone else has used it, I dont want it [​IMG]

    I think tying one or two down in strategic locations may be your only choice. Would it be safe to leave one in the incubator &/or fridge for egg marking purposes?

    If anyone looks at you funny or even has the gall to ask why you are purchasing so many, tell them it's for the office, or school or something. Besides, it's none of their business. I, for one, would probably make some wise crack about my sharpie fetish or something. lol I love saying things for the shock value.

    At the school, all the pens in the office have silk flowers attached to them. They get stuck in a vase full of marbles and look pretty on the desk, and it makes them very difficult to walk off with. You might want to try something like that with a few of your pens. It will also make the pens undesirable for spinning because they will have the bulky flower on one end.
