I think I enjoyed writing with a fountain pen more back in 1970 when I only had one good pen, just out of college.

Ah, today I'll write with this one with the broad stub . . . or this one with the medium italic . . .oh, no, this one with the oblique stub . . .no, the one with the cursive italic . . .nah, the one with the fine flex . . .the O3B would be a gas . . . maybe just the extra fine . . .

I don't write much with pens anymore, I just mess around with them.

The last thing I need is more pens, but it seems like the first thing I want...

I have thought about stopping and I do after every pay day. Then next pay day I start back up.

At this point, I absolutely need to, since I obviously have a fountain pen problem. This week I bought an m800 italic from the classifieds and an 80s m400 tortoise, neither of which I can afford. :embarrassed_smile:
