Quill pen

By Richie Ann Ashcraft

Soren ran in with a chicken feather from the back yard and yelled "Hey mom, got any ink? I wanna make this feather into a quill pen like the olden days."

"No," I told him, "but just dipping it in some ink like that won't work anyway. I tried that when I was a kid. You should YouTube it."

Back in the day, I would've said something different, like go look it up in a book. I don't even say that kind of stuff to my kids. I think research is research and YouTube is just as credible as the World Book. That's weird, but true.

He totally did YouTube it and found that it required the use of a razor blade.

He recruited Daddy because using sharp instruments falls in his job description. He showed him the YouTube video, presented him with a feather, then begged for a bottle of ink.

And then, in a weird twist of irony, he sat down and made handwritten letters to all of his friends.

We're going to mail thes handwritten quill pen letters to people using stamps through the United State Post Office. How old fashioned is that?

Awesome!
