Well, I am excited. Because, thanks to a lovely pen friend, I now have my own sample of a Bung Box ink. Bung Box sells the very chic and stunning inks that are sold in limited quantities at the Bung Box store in Japan and imported by a few US stores. People in the know always seem to snap them up. I feel like I’m crashing a sophisticated party.
Also, it’s a blue ink! Bung Box First Love Sapphire.
I’m not sure about the name. I do love blue. But my first love was named Greg. This was in fifth grade. I would write his last name after my first name when no one was looking. Plus, we would arm wrestle, because when you liked a boy/girl, you had to pretend you hated him/her. So I do not really relate to the name of this ink.
But, also, along with Bung Box [Greg] Sapphire, I was served cake, which was delicious. So what a good morning I had yesterday.
By the way, have you ever noticed that when you compliment someone’s cooking, a good cook always says, sincerely,”Oh it was easy.” Whereas someone like me would say, “Really, it turned out okay? Phew. I was so worried.” And then stop talking quickly because you’re not really supposed to divulge that you ran out of flour so you had to scrape the last bits off the counter, where there were also black dots (hopefully, toast crumbs, but I mean, it’s too late to check now). Etc.
I mean, so I’ve heard.
But, sorry, back to ink. Just to give you an idea, here is the fabulous and exciting Bung Box Sapphire next to a more conventional medium blue.
This will be so fun.
