I knew exactly what recepticle to hold the washed off ink in. When I was 8 or 9, I was given a Victorian ink well by the old guy who owned the off licence next to my primary school. He liked to call himself "The Tabacconist", he had crusty finger nails and occasionally tabs of snuff on his nose. He said he found it in his garden. I've never used it before and the off licence has since been bought by Nisa Local and the man doesn't work there anymore. It's a beautiful object, and has all the connotations of writing and the potential of future ideas.
