Shouldn’t there be rehab for people that have more than three of anything?
Sometimes I am just blown away with what people are interested in. I am basically hobby free. Which may make me a boring person but it also keeps me from having to go to garden club meetings! I mean talking about seeds and what kind of natural wreaths you can make from your dried hydrangea might make me kill myself right after I kill the guest speaker and girls in charge of desserts! Now don’t get me wrong… I love nature, hiking, biking, and chardonnay… But I don’t think they require a club president!
Some people “collect”. You may be confused with what this means, as I was when my mother in law asked me if I liked to “collect”. Well, she was referring to china. She has china everywhere. Her china is in china cabinets (stacks and stacks), she has china on her walls in every room in her house. I have, and I am still using, the 8 to 12 plates we received as wedding gifts and certainly don’t have any reason to have more plates! I also know a man that has a humongous trophy room for all of his animals he has killed in Africa. So instead of china on his walls he has stuffed elephants, along with lions and tigers and bears. He even has a giraffe, just like the one at toys r us, only bigger and real. So back to what people are interested in just amazes me. Do I judge? Yes! I’m happy for people that do crafts, have hobbies, enjoy meetings that only serve water and even for those that spend excessive amounts of money to shoot animals instead of saving them, if it brings them joy. I’m just saying…. I think they are nutcases.
This leads me to my profound amazement with hoarders. I get so overwhelmed when passing by a house with crap piled high in the “car ports”. People that are hoarders with garage doors or basements may be the worst because they can pretend they aren’t hoarding. I’m telling you this gets my adrenalin going like a black diamond mountain slope to natural born snow skier. A potential hobby I tried for less than five minutes. I want to go inside every house that has more than two rocking chairs on the front porch! When I see what they can’t throw away….blows me away. I try my very best to understand why someone wants crap but I just don’t get it. I am sorry the depression is over! We dont need cans and broken lawn chairs in our lives!
So this hobby free girl can easily stay out of Michael’s, stay away from clubs that don’t begin with country and toss out ANYTHING broken, as long as I don’t have to give up my addictions!
