    Shock / Surprise Of The Day

    During the past five years or so, I have been watching for, bidding on, and losing eBay auctions for Montblanc Writers Edition Oscar Wilde ballpoint pens. For the latest Oscar Wilde ballpoint pen auction of interest to me, I bid, was outbid, and then bid again, as usual, several times during the duration of the auction. Not expecting to win, since I never have in the past, I bid once again this afternoon before taking my sister to the train station. When I checked the listing for the auction ending price a couple hours ago, I was shocked and surprised to find that I had won the auction! This has never happened before -- that is, I won the auction without any last-second bidding. In fact, my last bid was placed over two hours before the end of the auction! I had managed to buy an Oscar Wide pencil first-hand (with all papers and boxes) from a pen store a few years ago -- the only Oscar Wilde series piece that I had seen in any pen store. After that, I had started watching for the pens on eBay. So, now, I must wait for the delivery of my new Oscar Wilde ballpoint pen! To date, this will be the most expensive single pen that I have ever purchased; my purchase of a four-piece (pencil, ballpoint, fountain pen, rollerball) Caran D'Ache Hexagonal Escalie (sp??) brown lacquer set on eBay is my only purchase for which the price was higher -- about twice as high as for this pen. Yikes! But, truth be told, the Caran D'Ache Hexagonal set is FANTASTIC and each piece writes like a dream, making the set well worth the price and one of my favorites. The Oscar Wilde ballpoint pen that I won has one of the lowest winning auction prices for an Oscar Wilde ballpoint pen that I have ever seen on eBay. It would seem that the other bidders forgot the ending time for the auction based on how rapidly they had outbid my other bids. The only lower-priced listing including an Oscar Wilde ballpoint pen that I have seen was for a ballpoint pen and pencil set listed by a seller that did not have a sufficient long-term feedback rating for my tastes and the pencil (which I did not need anyway) had some condition issued. So, now, I must endure the anticipation of receiving my new Oscar Wilde ballpoint pen! Darn international shipping -- at least five days to wait for the arrival. Of course, it could be longer as my last pen took a detour to another city -- tracking listed the pen as "missent" -- due to the postal service. Stuff happens. LOL! : )
