What luxury can I not live without? All six million of them. I love running water, glitter glue, chocolate, electricity, the Internet . . . We are so lucky that history’s “luxuries” are our “everydays.”

If I had to pick one though, it would be ball point pens. It is such a luxury to be able to write anywhere, anytime. I love that pens are easy to find or borrow or buy. And I especially love that I don’t have to dip a feather in ink to get the job done.
