My better half says I collect too many things. I have no idea why she’d think that.
Here’s a snap of airsickness bags I’ve accumulated over the past couple years that I finally got around to organizing when sorting through a few boxes of paper potpourri this morning. It’s especially heavy on Adria (Slovenia’s national carrier) and Turkish Airlines, but a few other somewhat “exotic” additions slipped in — exotic to me anyway.
I always get a kick out of out-of-the-ordinary usage of quotation marks. They appear especially ludicrous on motion sickness bags.
“For motion discomfort and baby diaper disposal”. Yeah, like, you know, “Nudge nudge, wink wink.”
Now I just have to find the bulk of my collection so these parts can finally be joined and a better accounting made. That’ll be awhile, thus this year-end partial inventory.
Consider this an invitation to any other barf bag collectors out there who are looking to trade; my dupe stock is obvious from the photo below. But remember: you must use real stamps on the packages we trade because I collect those too.
And again, to the barf bag-curious: check out the Air Sickness Bag Virtual Museum curated by motion sickness bag King Steven J. Silberberg whose collection now includes 2,859 pieces. I bet his better half is unapologetically proud.
