I try not to have a lot of stuff. In our house I have three drawers for all my stuff, and one of those is for clothes. One drawer contains everything I need such as passport, keys, phone chargers and that kind of thing. The other is full of wires.
Mrs Addman hates that wire drawer. She’d rather I got rid of all my wires so we could put bedsheets in there or something equally useless. However, if there’s one thing that women need to learn about relationships, it’s never to come between a man and his wires.
I’m guilty of being a hoarder when it comes to wires. I have wires for everything. I have wires for TVs, games consoles, phones that we no longer have, car chargers, headset wires, wires that plug into other wires, electric wirebrush wires (probably), you name it, I’ve got it. I want to amass a collection of cables that could be deployed to ensnare potential burglars. I’ll sell the blueprints as home security devices.
Sometimes, when I’m alone in the house, I like to strip naked and writhe around in my wire drawer in the dark. Or at least, I would, but I’m scared of becoming trapped in the dense tangle of wires and suffocating to death. I reckon this is exactly what killed David Carradine.*
|Let me at 'em!|
As a couple, we tend to hoard DVDs and games. At last count, between us we own more than 450 DVDs, and I’m sure we’ve got plenty more than that after a rather busy, entertainment filled Christmas. Mrs Addman collects Disney DVDs and has nearly all 50+ Classics. Unfortunately, most of them came bundled with straight to DVD sequels like Tarzan: The Burger King Years, and The Rescuers vs Predator.
If this trend continues for the next few years they’re going to have to cut through our back wall to save us from an avalanche of used discs, like when they have to chainsaw obese people free from their homes.
I was wondering what weird and interesting things you lovely people like to collect. Don’t be shy, share with us. We’re all friends here.
*Note to brain: David Carradine jokes? Really? In the next couple of years I might put up some Michael Jackson jokes.
