It's a pickle because I have already established so many parameters for my potential Collection that I may never actually start it. But I do so like thinking about it.
The Collection needs to consist of something that is easily obtainable. I do not plan to travel great distances in search of The Item in all of its distinctive forms.
The Collection needs to consist of something that is relatively inexpensive. I dislike spending heaps of money [even assuming I had Heaps at my disposal...] on things that are not necessary.
The Collection needs to consist of something ordinary and not valuable in and of itself. I want the value of the Collection to be based solely on the fact that I truly like each individual piece and not on some predetermined value of each piece.
The Collection needs to consist of something that is easily stored away, possibly in cute little colorful containers that look like tiny barrels [bonus points] that are capable of being stacked to create miniature fortresses for Lego men [double bonus points]. Also, would you believe a Google search for that criteria comes up with absolutely nothing helpful?
The Collection would be seemingly common and yet, hopefully, unique all at once.
I wish to be a Collector.
Whatever will I collect?
these guys apparently don't count as appropriate topic items for The Collection...
