Shotglass nostalgia

Do you have any collections?

I love collecting items. Although, lately, I have been getting rid of some items that have needed to go away a while ago. Other things I’ve been moving on are those that sadly need to move on so we can mentally move on. Basically, there is a lot of moving on. Nevertheless, I like my collectibles.

One of the things I collect are shotglasses from all the states and countries to which I have been. I like finding shotglasses, which can really stir up a memory of the visited location.

Considering I’ve been to all 50 states and many countries, my shotglass collection is rather large. Admittedly, I have used maybe 1/15th of them. I think it’s time I threw a party.

Even though my collection is rather large. It can be larger. There are more countries to go and experience. More places to go to develop long-lasting memories.

What tickles me a bit is that my son started a collection of his own at a very young age. Basically, at age one. Ostensibly, one can say I started it for him. But it was really all him. Very early on, he developed a fondness for penguins. This was even more enhanced after we went to Australia and caught at dawn a march of the penguins. My mother loved penhuins. Thus, I encouraged my son’s penguin fondness. Interestingly, many countries to which we have been have had penguin plushies and the like. His penguin collection is huge. And, I hope it gets bigger with time.
