I have always been a collector. Rocks, sea shells, stickers, marbles, stamps, stuffed animals...oh yes, and bouncy balls.
Why? why bouncy balls? (she shrugs) eh, couldn't tell ya.
I can tell you that that one, tangled, shiny mess of tinsel is actually an authentic "Halley's Comet bouncy ball". oooohhh. now you're impressed.
I say that I have always been a collector, but I should actually say that I am a FORMER collector. No, no 12 steps here. I wish! just a daily reminder to myself that I don't want my family to drown in junk.
I took this photo the day I threw the bouncy ball collection away. No, I wouldn't have thrown them away if they had been in any way salvageable--but, sadly, bouncy balls do not age well.
I attempted to bounce one and it split! a halved bouncy ball lying on the floor in a crumb pool of flaked, brittle rubber pieces...sad. like the packaged toys in Toy Story 2 that never got played with.
anyone else a collector? former collector?
