I love mini things.
Ok, I more than love them. I'm pretty much obsessed. (lets clear this up in the beginning- "little people" are awesome, but no, I'm not obsessed with them).
I have a miniatures corner at my desk at work. At Christmas it also features a mini Christmas tree with mini Christmas presents (that I actually wrap).
When people go on vacation they often bring me back souvenirs (even if they don't buy stuff for others) because they saw something mini and thought of me.
That's actually pretty cool. Who knew that a weird obsession would get me so many gifts. haha.
Anyway, I seriously love miniature things. But it's specific.
People have found out about my love of mini and been like "wow, you must love Junior Mints."
Just because it's "junior" does not make it mini!
I specifically like things that are normally one size and are much smaller. For example:
Baby humans and animals (amiright?)
Funny story: I one time weirded out some women at Target because I was in line talking to a friend about my mini obsession and said "that's why I love baby clothes- they are like regular people clothes, but mini. Holy crap! That's why I like babies! Because they're people, but MINI!!"
Mini food in general
This is probably the most fun post for me to write because I got to google "mini" and just enjoy! So, here are more mini things- Look!! :)
A couple of weeks ago I went to a friend's house for game night and we played a game called Dicecapades. There were all different sizes of dice, including tons of teeny-tiny mini dice!
I'll be honest, I was giddy with joy over the mini dice. It was pretty sad actually. I cannot tell you how many times my friends gave me the "Are you serious? You're practically insane." look. Yeah, I get that look enough that it has a name. It looks kind of like this:
And I'm all ecstatic like these Asian people (except I'm not Asian... in case you were confused):
Anyway, we all have things we love for no real reason. We have a lot of things we love for real, valid reasons and that's cool and all. But I think everyone needs at least one obsession for something completely irrational. This is probably only one of mine, but it's my favorite.
Do you have an irrational obsession?
