How come this is the only color that leaks? (She asks, gazing upon the red ink all over her right middle finger.)

My experience is that only black leaks....it dates back to 5th grade and a red jumper...I only use blue now.

I sat on a red ink pad when I was wearing white jeans once. At work no less.

Okay, so how did you sit on an ink pad? Did someone leave it on your chair??

The ink pad was on the edge of a desk and I was leaning/sitting on the desk talking to someone. I'm quite good at doing things like that.

Maybe the consistency to the red ink is different from that of other colors? It always seems goopier and more prone to blobs on the ballpoint tip in comparison.

If dye colors impact fiber differently, why wouldn't it be similar with ink?

I find older pens leak more. So maybe if you do not use the red so often, they last longer and then get older and leak. Lots of things leak when they get older.
But Lucybug`. Fancy leaning on a red ink pad. Did everyone think you had your monthlys?

Grandmoogie - I'm sure they did think that but were too kind to say anything.

There is something about dyes and the color red. I don't dye so don't know the chemistry. When I used to take ballet I always had to wash my maroon-ish leotard separately because it ran -- even after washing it several times. So it's really special that it always seems to be the red pens that leak.
