I don’t know if I’ve mentioned it before, but I have an obsession with Starbucks mugs. But, like with all of my previous ‘collection’ obsessions, I tend to hide them away for fear that they will get broken. I think I have about eight mugs now (I lose count because they’re all packed away) and I love them, and I wish I could use them, but like I said, I’m scared they’ll get broken.
So, in a perfect world, I’d love to buy two of each, one to pack away and cherish and one to use and enjoy. I kind of feel like that about a lot of things; I love having something that’s in perfect condition (still wrapped if possible) and having one that I can use, otherwise, what’s the point? I used to do it with CD’s, but these mugs are kind of pricey so I can’t really buy two of each. And it annoys the hell out of me! It’s only going to get more expensive to buy duplicates though, seeing as they fly off the shelves never to be seen again except for on eBay, where they’re over-priced!
I hate obsessions! Mine are usually based around material things that cost money. Makeup, mugs, coffee in general, but then it’s mostly always been the case; pencils, postcards etc. Long gone are the days where I was happy to sit down and obsess over the same book for hours on end!
