One Final Hit

It's nice when your favourite movie and your favourite hobby can cross paths. My two favourite movies are 'There Will Be Blood' and 'Trainspotting.' 'Trainspotting' is about a group of heroin addicts in Scotland. It's funny, it's tragic, and it's very quote-able. When breaking boxes, I've noticed that I've started to talk in a Scottish accent looking for one more big hit.

"All I need is one final hit to soothe the pain"

"One final hit to get us over this long, hard day."

"This was to be my final hit, but let's be clear about this. There's final hits and final hits. What kind was this to be?"

"I want a f$#%ing hit!"

"Better than sex. The ultimate hit."

Of course, in 'Trainspotting', the "hit" is in reference to drugs. But is card collecting anything less than a drug... and am I anything less than an addict?
