One of the toughest thing about not making buckets of money is that there are some things I absolutely love that just require a budget. My Lego addiction is one of them.
It’s also amongst my favourite things that Natalie Joy and I do together. Low-stakes, cooperative, creative, hands-on, colourful, a tactical pleasure, and satisfying.
There aren’t many things I feel justified in being excessive about, but I am entirely comfortable indulging in hoarder-like behaviour when it comes to Lego. Bury me in it and I’ll die happy, my death rattle the muffled sound of bricks snapping together beneath the pile.
Go build something! And, as always, paddle your own canoe.
