Of all the things I save, I guess you could say my love letters are my most prized possessions.
Y’know, I can relate. I’m somewhat of a hoarder as well. I save all the receipts of my DVDs. I keep the tags of my bags in the inner pocket of said bag. I collect museum pamphlets as souvenir. Hey, you’ll never know.
