Good morning, Italki friends!
This morning I remembered that in my childhood I collected soaps. I kept the best soaps and did not give to someone.
Now, I think collecting something is nonsense. It is useful to collect only books, of course, if you read them.
What do you think? Do you still collect something?
ADRIAN, I think YOU will not find time to read your newspapers because of internet :)
ZMAJIC, good thoughts:)
I know an old doctor, who likes to collet gold things. If you see her it will seem to you that she is very poor. Because she does not want to sell her golds. She says : I can not. They are very expencive.Now she is very ill. Her children suffer because of their mother's character.
So, there are many such collectors in the world.
I used to collect flowers .I took the flowers in my note books .When it dried the note book still smelled good.
I write something about that flower in the page which flower was in.Maybe the flower's new name I gave.Maybe the things happpened on that day.Or......maybe some handsome guy's nick name.
When I was a child, I used to collect Disney trading cards, postcards, calling cards for pay phones, small toys inside the Kinder Surprise, some comics like<em> TopoMistery</em> (about the adventures of Micky Mouse detective), rock magazines... The wonderful '90s!!
Nowadays I collect most of all hats, nerd t-shirt and concert tickets.
Dvds, cds, Civil War photographs, antique figurines.
When I was a child, I loved to catch and keep glasshoppers in many bottles. It's a nice memory, glasshopper is so beautiful and various. Next to my house is a banana field, after lunch I along with my brother usually run through it and tried to catch glasshoppers. Some of them were very big, I considered them super hero and named them. It's very hard to find a glasshopper now, because of pesticides. I really want to be a child again.
