September 18: Legos and compulsive behavior
September 19, 2012 § Leave a comment
I don’t know what possessed me to rebuild that Millennium Falcon Lego set. Because I assure you, I did almost all of it myself. Maybe it was the fact that someone paid a whole lot of money for it, and then it sat in the corner somewhere, all broken up. Maybe it’s that I secretly like building Lego sets. Maybe I am just masochistic.
It took three days, maybe more. Many of the pieces were elsewhere. But I persevered, and Han Solo’s ship is done.
On a spiritual fulfillment scale, this project gets a 2. There are certainly better and less frustrating ways to spend time. But, hey, I got a few evenings of hanging out with J. in his room, doing little or no thinking. And that’s not a bad thing.
