Pen Problems

My favorite pen doesn’t work anymore. I’ve tried shaking it. I’ve tried scribbling really hard on a piece of paper. Nothing seems to work.

I was hoping my miraculous powers might get my pen to work again. I guess not.

Oh my...your holiness! To what do I owe the honor of your visit to my humble place? Must be divine intervention ;) Hope your pen gets better.

I have a question for the Pope!

What is the proper form of salutation in a letter addressing the Pope?

Dear Holiness? Dear Sir? Dear Pope?

None of them sound proper, but none of my books have a solution as it is a distinctly unique problem.

Mr. Word, I prefer that all letters are addressed "Dear Holiness."

If it's just a quick email, it's okay if someone writes "Dear Pope."

I'll let that slide.

Your Holiness

Try holding a flame from a BIC lighter to the tip of your BIC pen. This shall stimulate the ink and allow it to flow - just like your damn robes.

yours in service

Dear Pope,
I'll bet the miraculous powers of replacing the little inner tube of ink will make you favorite pen functional again! Not quite divine intervention, but still pretty freakin' cool.

Your Holiness,

This is tragic indeed.

Why not replace it with a Gold one? Real gold of course. Have your name inscribed on it. Go all out. You don't get a new pen everyday.

It's always sad to lose a good pen :(
You and your pen are in my thoughts and prayers in this time of grief.

HP is right (even though he opted to swear again). Everybody knows that a match or lighter held closely to the tip will move that dried up ink right along.
