I...Ink...ABC Wednesday

ABC Wednesday

My first ABC Wednesday challenge, (thankyou Mrs Nesbitt and team for hosting) and I've come in on the letter I.

I'm an Insomniac, and last night I was thinking about being Indoors at school when I was an Infant. I was the Ink monitor and filled the Inkwells each day and went home with Inky fingers; it was Impossibly Ingrained. My preferred colour was Indigo blue from India.

The only bottle of Ink I could find in the house.
My Impertinent friend Ivan Insisted on Inserting the nib from his pen In-between the desks and splattering blue droplets Inventively over his Incredibly beautiful Illustrated books  -  Ill-tempered Individual!  This would Incur the wrath of our Informative teacher who was Irritated by Inventive Ivan's Insane outburst.

Our Inspired teacher tried to Instill a sense of wonder in learning. I think he was under the Illusion that everyone was Interested in not being Illiterate. He thought this was very Important! He Insisted the letter I was vital for us to learn, but it's not very Interesting, just being a simple stick.  I hope the Italians would Include some Illuminated manuscripts in their museums to keep me Intrigued in this Insubstantial letter.

We also learnt about Inches and Inchworms before the Introduction of Metrics. These lessons were very Informative.

I think I'm getting a bit Intense and It's possibly unwise to let my Imagination run on any further because you might become Impatient with my Insistence that I Is a vital Ingredient in our alphabet.   I would then be Irrationally and Impossibly Inconsolable.

I associate ink with old-time writing as well as art. Welcome.

Rosy, pleased to make you smile :)
Kochuravi, thankyou.
MrsNesbitt; a bit of a hazard I suspect! I've already begun - drat ;)
ROG, those dip pens were such messy things until you got the hang of them properly. I don't think I ever mastered them.

Gosh that ink monitor story brought back some memories. What fun. Although I never rose as high as ink monitor (with good reason) only pencils. I now almost feel like rushing out to buy a bottle of ink, I have the nibs:-)
Welcome aboard ABC Wednesday.

Becky, I'm enjoying playing, and exploring new types of writing. sometimes - no, often - I'm amazed by what gurgles out of my brain.
Joy, My husband was also a bit envious of my elevated status as an ink monitor! I don't have nibs only ink, perhaps we could share?
Shady G, You don't think I overdid it?
Marina, glad you found it funny
Rambling Round hehehe, good one!
Jay, all these ink monitors coming out of the woodwork! funny, I don't remember the smell, just the mess.
Meryl, It's always good to try new things, this one is fun isn't it!
