Not sure if this was posted before but what typical reaction do you get from friends and family when they find out you:

1) Collect
2) Spend large sums of money on your collection
3) Fly around the country to buy comics/ have dinner with fellow collectors, etc.

I think that life's too short for this. I want back my ignorance and bliss. I think I've had enough of this. Blow me... one last kiss.

You can tell the truth or you can lie. You can say I left you or I died. Say I'm in the Himalayas on some spiritual quest and could spend years lookin' for the light. Say I'm in the witness program with the F.B.I. Say a U.F.O. abducted me from home. Well, you can say what you chose, but I tell you the truth. You can say for sure I'm gone.
