Fabulous collectibles

A couple of words that have caught my eye of late.

First, I used the word fabulous recently. I loved the idea that it could be construed as meaning of or relating to fables. It inspires a much greater feeling than its regular meaning of really good.

And today, I passed a charity shop that was advertising its sale of collectibles. (It was spelt collectables but I don’t like that version.) Surely technically, everything falls into this category. Everything, that is, of which there are two or more in existence. Collecting one-offs would be somewhat challenging, and arguably futile.

    Handy – useful like a hand. Weird.
