What is the weirdest thing you collect?
Right now my bedroom window sill has turned into a graveyard of flies. There must be around 20 of them. The fact that I’ve not bothered to clean them up suggests that I’m a complete slob (not impossible, but on the other hand I have been accused of being an OCD neat freak) or that I have unintentionally become a hoarder of dead flies.
Of course I collect things your average human would, like art, books, music, DVDs, pillows…and also medical apparatus, dried out roses, lunchbox tins, my used glucose monitor strips (I’m a type 1 diabetic) and sooo much more. Out of love or madness, or both, humans are collectors. Collectors of things we need (my mum collects vintage plates) and things we don’t need (like dead flies).
Some of the strangest collections in the world include Graham Barkers’ navel fluff collection, burnt food, and air sickness bags. What is the weirdest thing you collect?
