Daylight robbery

It’s a well-known fact that architects love pens. ‘Oooh pens!’ they say. From the lowly student architect, who has to scrounge around the back of the sofa just to raise enough cash for a Pilot V5, all the way to the upper echelons of the architectural aristocracy. They love pens. But sometimes their love of pens gets the better of them. For when Astragal was trying in vain to prop his eyelids open at the last RIBA council meeting, his pen was unashamedly swiped from under his nose. So he would like to use this space to say that whoever you are, he'd like his pen back please. If you return it to the AJ’s address, there will be no further action.
