As many of you know, or may not know, my wife and I live humbly. In that we usually don’t get to spoil ourselves with nice or new things. We’re not poor by any means, but when it comes to collecting things or hobbies we just have to make choices sometimes. “Do i want this yarn or do I want to go get a burger sometime this week?” To a lot of you it may not sound like much. And Maybe some of you are of the opinion that we’re well off.
We are well off. We have a lovely studio home, somewhat of an A/C unit, running water, power, internet, and a working car! We know we’re blessed to have those things. But every once-in-a-while we long for something new or shinny.
Recently, and now to what may be my regret, I mentioned in passing to my Dad, as we were at lunch during a work day, that I’d like to get back into model cars (making them) or World of Warcraft Figures as a hobby once I found a decent job. He inquired more about the later (the WoW figures) and I explained what they were and where they were found. Granted I had no idea what was to follow.
I later found out they were sent directly from blizzard store and I wondered who did it. It turned out to be my dad. I promptly thanked him. This story doesn’t end there though. Today I recieved yet ANOTHER Large box from Blizzard. Upon opening it i found these contents:
Taz’Dingo, a Troll Hunter, and Chen Stormsout, Pandaren Brewmaster.
Upon inquiring why more were sent he simply said that he though it should start the collection off well. However, he also mentioned, that the “Panda man reminded me of you.” Uh…lolwat?
Anyway…here i am with a great start to a collection and now I have a first world problem…do I keep them in their boxes or take them out to display. Let me know please! I wont decide until tomorrow. Please comment or let me know on twitter what YOU think I should do. I’ll choose the most popular answer!
