My brother is nuts...he only buys old cars that don't run. And he never fixes them, he just parks them and say's he will get around to working on them someday. I try to talk to him about this but then perhaps I am only a little saner by degree.
Why did I buy all the watches that have come and gone through my life? If I had kept more of them I might be able to come up with an answer that made sense. As it is, I only have one I really (hope?) don't plan to sell...and it is not at all the rarest or the most interesting or etc. My other two I periodically try to sell for felonious prices...and they don't sell so I put them back in their pouches and wear them when I sleep so as to give them some reason for existing...and for my having bought them. And to be honest if I could have all the watches that I bought and sold once more back in my posession, I would do it...only to stroke them and wind them and set them and stare at them...and then start thinking about which ones to sell...again.
The one that I am currently trying to sell (without luck) has me desperately trying to convince myself to keep it by putting it back on a bracelet...which I will have to buy. The one I am not currently trying to sell but might soon, is the one that gets all the attention and ooohhhhs and aaaahhhhhs when I wear it but even though I really really really like it...I just don't love it...so I try to make it more appealing to me by trying different straps on it...straps that don't really work with the other watches...and so I've a bunch of very nice straps for a watch I don't really love and maybe won't keep.
But why did I buy these two watches that I still have but don't really want? And why did I sell all those watches that now I want back? Which makes me wonder "what will I do with the watch I really really love? I hope I don't sell it.
Maybe my brother could give me some advice. Anybody else have these...doubts?
