In fiction, a MacGuffin is a plot device in the form of some goal, desired object, or other motivator that the protagonist pursues, often with little or no narrative explanation. The specific nature of a MacGuffin is typically unimportant to the overall plot. The most common type of MacGuffin is an object, place,
or person - in my case: the ballpoint pen.

* The term MacGuffin was popularized by director Alfred Hitchcock.
   In his 1962 interview with François Truffaut, Hitchcock explains:
   The main thing I’ve learned over the years is that the MacGuffin is nothing. I’m convinced of this, but I find it very difficult to prove it to others.
Inspiration ~ columns from left to right: Vertigo, Psycho, North by Northwest.
                                                                      - If I let you change me, will that do it? If I do what you tell me, will you love me?
                                                                                     - Yes. Yes.
                                                                       - All right. All right then, I'll do it. I don't care anymore about me.
