Lost future collectibles

“When I was in high school I started surreptitiously buying issues of a new men's magazine called Playboy,” wrote Ted Redman. “I built up quite a collection which I kept for over 20 years.”

Until the incident.

“My wife and I came home from work one day and found them chewed up and strewn all over the living room floor (along with a large rubber plant and all the dirt from the pot it had been in).

“Our German shepherd had had a most entertaining day.

“So all the debris got trashed. I think the issue featuring Marilyn Monroe and maybe a few others are highly sought after today.”

If you had it to do over again

It might have been a good idea to hang on to your old lunch boxes.

And you probably should have kept your “Fantastic Voyage” board game.
