Re: Describing your hobby


The classic conversation:

"You're what?  Oh, trains.  How many sets do you have?"

When I say "None", they're usually totally non-plussed.  Explaining about building freight cars sometimes lasts a few sentences, long enough for the other party to recall that Uncle whatever, or Grandpa, used to have some Lionel and how it's either still in the attic or "How much do you think it's worth and can I sell it on eBay?"
