Spicy Fish Sandwiches

I’m ready to start a collection.

Apparently, worldly humans have a “thing” they collect. It might be coffee mugs or coins, a specific animal figurine perhaps.

If I’m going to do it, I really want to do it right, ya know? Like, I tried the elephant figurine thing for a while, but I forgot why I started & that makes for a mega-lame collection story. I could do Titanic memorabilia but that’s so obvious. I really want to wow people with this.

I was antiquing yesterday and was just inspired. One man had thousands and thousands of unused postcards. Each postcard was individually wrapped in cellophane and then filed in order of subject. I love filing systems! Another man had a killer stamp collection. You simply don’t know how often you might need a “fabulous” stamp. My favorite, though, was a collection of antique tiaras. Can you even imagine the damage I could have done as a child if my grandmother had a tiara collection? My school pictures would have been epic.

I do, however, have about 18 NOW CD’s that might lay the groundwork for a serious compact disc collection….

    I have started a Ruined Onesie collection. Baby poos the outfit, I get it as clean as it can be, I store it away so when he gets to be a high school student, I always retain the ability to bribe him into good behavior.
