August is “What Will Be Your Legacy?” month. And it has you feeling some type of way. How will you be remembered? Your latest trip to the hamburger stand brought the question to mind and has you pondering your mortality. Just as you thought you shouldn’t cram any more onion rings into your mouth, you noticed there was a ranch packet under your crumpled fry bag. One whole packet for one whole ring—truly a match made in heaven.
But, heaven is almost exactly where you were going, because you chomped on that thing so fast, you didn’t think it could even fit down your throat. As you choked and felt the oxygen slowly leave your brain, your life flashed before your eyes. If you died right there, what would you leave behind? Eventually you were fine as you downed your entire soda…but your mortality still lingered. With the stuff you eat, you could have a clogged artery any day now. So, how would you want to be memorialized?
Would it be by your love for fast food? Dying while eating, doing what you love? Well maybe, but obituaries usually like to talk about hobbies. So, that would have to be music…and…BEANIE BABIES.
You always loved Led Zeppelin. Your parents thought it would be a passing phase that started out of your obsession with Hot Topic, but nope. You were hooked ever since you heard “Stairway to Heaven.” When you started making money, you tracked down signed merch and records, and now they sit in a box in your closet. They should really be on display, or at least boxed somewhere where nothing will break.
It’s funny that you have a Led Zeppelin collection because you also have a Beanie Babies collection. What’s wrong with that? They are a perfect yin-and-yang combination. Though it’s the Beanie Babies that truly brought out the dark side in you….
You started collecting them as a child, but stopped. But as an adult, when you heard the value they hold and money they could bring, you started again. Remember when you found Mystic the Unicorn on eBay? And you were willing to drop a down payment on a car? It’s super cute, though, who could blame you?
Maybe you don’t want to be remembered for that. Come to think of it…maybe you should start volunteering. You’d love for people to remember you as a charitable person, even if you are not opposed to stealing fries from your kid’s Happy Meal when he isn’t looking.
But hey, if you want to be remembered for your music obsessions and Led Zeppelin fanaticism, keep your collection intact and safe at StorBox. With unit sizes from 5×5 to 10×30 square feet, there’s enough room for it all…and enough room for you to continue collecting Beanie Babies. Secretly, of course.
