I always dreamt of getting my first century. I can picture it now… the hush of the stadium as the bowler starts his run up… the whoosh of the bat as it sings through the air… the crack of leather and cork being forcefully struck by willow… the dull thud as the cricket ball lands outside the boundary rope for a six… the resultant shout of acclamation from the thousands watching as I kiss the England cricket badge emblazoned on my protective helmet and calmly lift both it and my bat in an understatedly English manner to salute the now exultant adoring crowds…. Bliss!
Alas it was not to be. So this will have to suffice for this frustrated cricket star… I was reminded yesterday that I had promised that every century or so I would do a small giveaway on this blog, not a hundred runs for England nor a hundred years you’ll be glad to hear but every hundred followers on @FoolWithaPen on Twitter. So having reached the gargantuan milestone of my first hundred or so followers its time for a giveaway!
But what to giveaway? Well It had to be a pen, and to be honest something that wasn’t going to break the bank (No sponsors helping me with this site at present sadly) but also something a little out of the ordinary. Something that would please the fountain pen user if for no other reason than they got it for free. So here it is…. presenting the Noodlers Nib Creaper in Lapis Inferno. This reasonably priced piston fill pen was just what I was looking for…
