Put me anywhere near an ink pen and I am immediately covered in the stuff. My inky fingers were such a mess yesterday afternoon and however hard I scrubbed, wouldn’t come clean. I ought to have thought about the fact that I was “on show” last night before I got my pens out!
To think, I was ink monitor at school. At the age of eight, I was given a large bottle of blue Quink and every morning, I went around every desk in my primary school classroom and topped up each inkwell. My teacher allowed me to keep a stick of chalk in my pocket too, in case I overfilled one of them. The chalk soaked up the excess ink quickly and no damage was done. It also came in handy for a game of hopscotch at playtime in the schoolyard.
We’ve talked about how quickly life changes recently. We grew up in a different world, didn’t we?
Dorothy, they're Pilot Parallel Pens. I've had them for ages and like them very much. I'm glad to see they're still made.
