The happy news that Hard Candy is reappearing gave me some food for thought. I looked in my trusted Helmer and counted my HC polishes and I came up with some 30+. A year ago I did not even know the brand existed.
What is it that makes certain individuals so proned to collecting things? Is it some genetic residue from the time when only she survived, who had collected enough nuts and roots and knew how to store them in a cunning way?
I suspect that is at least part of the answer. Myself, I'm not happy unless I'm on the hunt for something. The objects of my lemmings have shifted over the years.
I have a big book collection, quite a lot of strange adventure games and more miniature pigs than I care to mention ;-)
And nowadays, I'm feeding my Helmer a little something almost every day, and it brings me pleasure every time.
