I obsess with things.
Whether it's golf, bass fishing, politics, etc., once I glom onto something, I can't let it go until I wear it out, neglecting friends, family, and my physical and emotional health and well-being until I wind up utterly repulsed by its very mention.
One such obsession of mine was eBay.
I had, of course, heard of eBay but never ventured to it before early last spring when I was in the market for new golf clubs. I had fallen in love with a brand called Tour Edge that none of the pro shops in the area seemed to carry.
