Having been on this forum for a while, I have a
proposal. Let’s start a new acronym for
that tendency many of us have to organize, complete, evaluate, curate,
overspend and generally get all weird about our LEGO. This would replace the phrase “my OCD” with “my
FMA.” Of course Mathom is a nod to
Tolkien, but I would say LEGO are closer to the Old English definition, rather
than the Hobbit understanding.
You see, OCD is not a simple little inclination to be particular about elements of a hobby, or conflicted over buying another set, but a serious debilitating mental illness. Remember the “D” stands for Disorder, not placement on a scale from slob to neat-freak.
As a small step in a positive direction, I thought the members of this forum might enjoy starting an alternative designation. AFOLs are a pretty awesome bunch on the whole.
Don’t know if this will move to “Off Topic”, but OCD gets thrown out there a lot in “Collecting”
