285 A Form Of Huffing.


I used to collect Star Wars figures.  I found the smell of the drying paint and vinyl quite intoxicating, as did some of my contemporaries.  After a while we realized that our desire to sniff new action figures was a mild for of huffing.  The smell of freshly opened toy gives a feeling of euphoria to a lot of collectors.  It doesn’t make it less weird, but at least a person can find some small comfort in knowing they aren’t alone in their weirdness.
