I often find myself looking at various little containers, thinking of the possibilities of using them as ink wells. Spice bottles, shot glasses, perfume bottles, urine test jars....

Those containers... um.... still half full or already rinsed out?

If I find an ink named that, I may trip over myself to buy it.
