Do you have a plethora of anything?

    I was just reading that a poster has a plethora of knives and I got to wondering whether I have a plethora of anything. Have you?

    Teaspoons possibly, but I'm good at throwing things out so generally no. I had new teaspoons for Christmas while my old teaspoons are also quite nice, hence the plethora.

    Paper clips. Actually, I probably have a kilopleth of them.

    I had a plethora of socks, and ordered more from Sockshop, so I thought I had better have a deplethorise. I'm probably down to about 20 pairs now, which I don't think is "plethora" territory.

    I know you want to know and I have counted the knives.
    I have a drawer full (114)
    Pens - in excess of 150 (I'm working my way through them to see how many work and have only got that far)

    I have a ridiculous plethroa of pens that don't work. I keep meaning to go through them but it never seems enough of a priority. Perhaps in the Easter holidays...

    I have a plethora of opinions.

    Much good that does me.

    There was nothing on TV today, I'm still limping badly and it was wet and dreary :)
    I only realised whilst sorting paperwork out a couple of weeks ago (tx return) that I still had so many pens

    Is it ridiculous because it is a 'plethroa'?

    Weavings. I had a brief obsession.

    Well when I moved here I have very little of anything and people (friends and family) donated spares
    Then other family passed on stuff that I had stored in lofts and cupboards ad it all sort of got complicated
