Bobbleheads

I used to think souvenirs were the lamest things ever. The little keychains or the magnets always seemed so tacky to me. Back when I formulated that opinion, I thought shot glasses were just small clear mugs. That didn’t make sense to me either. It probably wasn’t until I found out what shot glasses were, that I began to actually like souvenirs, and by then, I was too late to the game. Other people had already claimed their “thing” to collect at every place and now I feared I would just be copying everyone else.

I started doing enough traveling that I actually wanted to get souvenirs and so I had to decide on something. And for one reason or another, I decided it’d be bobbleheads. The problem is that bobbleheads aren’t all that common of a souvenir. They also tend to be pricier, and a bit fragile. It’s quite a burden to tell someone, “Oh, you’re going to the Great Wall? Can you pick me up a bobblehead?”

So, now I’m stuck with bobbleheads, though my collection only consists of 2: one from Rome and one from Disneyland.
