Bags o' Barf!
Even though I was nauseous, I was sort of impressed by the airline's barf-bags. How thoughtful! And look, it has a plastic lining so my stomach juice won't soak through!
And so I started collecting barf-bags! I got up to about 12 of them or so, and then realized that a barf-bag collection isn't that great. You can't really display them ("Behold! My barf-bags!"), and they don't stack on a book shelf or look good framed on a wall.
So I stopped collecting them.
But reading this story has made me change my mind. A guy named Steve Silverberg has been collecting barf-bags for a long time...and now he has almost 2,500 of them! And the Internet is the perfect place to share his collection, so hopefully he'll improve his site over at airsicknessbags.com.
Hey, wait a minute...these bags that Silverberg collects haven't even been USED yet? What a wussy!
