What is the worst you have done to fuel your Lego addiction? Or what trouble has it got you into? We don’t want to hear about anyone stealing, beating someone up to take their Lego stash or anything else illegal or truly immoral. Maybe just stuff that you feel mildly ashamed about.
I had the idea to create this post a couple of days ago when I was viewing a house to potentially purchase. The kids’ rooms had a lot of Lego in them, and I noticed that amongst all the half built/smashed Lego, was a Queen Amidala #sw0387. She is pretty high up on my list of “ones that got away”. I feel ashamed just typing the words, but I briefly wondered whether the child would miss Amidala if it fell into my pocket. I cannot stress enough that there is absolutely no way I would ever have stolen from someone, let alone a child. But there is no escaping the fact that the dark, dark thought was allowed to take root inside my brain. I’m starting to think that the only way to rid myself of the dirty feeling it has left might be to go back with a little Lego gift as some sort of penance.
So what have you done that you are ashamed of or that pushed the boundaries of what might be considered socially acceptable? Have you been busted by your significant other decanting a freshly-acquired Lego set into a cornflakes box to conceal your purchase? Or have you had to live off beans on toast for a month as your entire budget was spent on brick.? I will post a couple of personal examples in separate posts to help kick things off. There were also some great examples in the Bonusball thread I hosted in June of 2019. Feel free to reproduce those to memorialise your shame in this more permanent thread.
