I’ve been through several phases when I wanted to start collecting something. It was usually when I’d see someone else’s collection of thimbles or shot glasses or what have you.
Hey! Why don’t I collect anything?
This is similar in feel to when my brother checkmates me in four moves and I vow to become a chess master until I realize I would actually have to practice chess.
So: I have a book collection. I have a lot of weights. When I was a kid I had a baseball card collection that I adored, but it wouldn’t seem voluminous to an adult collector, and its value was purely sentimental.
What about you? Do you collect anything? (only one person gets to say “I collect compliments,” in the comments, so get it out of your systems quickly)
