I like to collect random things. I'm sure there are lots of you out there that do. There are the handful of things I've collected forever like my shot glasses or postcards, but then there is that other category of the things that I collect for a while until I get my fill.
This summer I've noticed all my flashlights have disappeared (I have three short culprits in this house who I'm pointing my finger at). I used to have three in my purse and at least one or two on my nightstand. You think thats silly? I'll tell ya what though I used those flashlights ALL the time. Like once when this cute little 10 year old in front of me at the movie theater with her friends lost her ring. Wala! I had my flashlight. I've been trying to gather more but it's been a slow process. I've now acquired two, but I think I need at least two more.
One other random thing is that this year I've been given three water bottles (one as a gift, one I won at my family reunion and one that came with a gym bag I won online). Add those to the one I've had for over 4 years (the one they give you in the hospital when you have a baby, I just love how big it is) and the one I saw at the store and just had to have and now, hopefully, I'll never go thirsty. I love having a variety though because then I can grab one that fits my mood (handle, top/drink feature, decoration, size).
Tell Me: Do you collect things for a time? What are some of your collections?
