Luke got like four Lego sets for his birthday, all were done within the weekend including the High Speed Train.
There was one he did not touch, it is from the “techno” series and possibly the only reference he has is me and mom talking about how they are more complicated builds. Perhaps that is why he did not want to mess with it.
All in good time a few days later Luke dives into the piece. I hear him in his work area working on it with a fair amount of, “bad Lego” when things don’t fit together properly or some other unforeseen issue.
Finally Luke comes to me for some guidance (usually a last resort when it comes to building Lego’s) and says there is a problem with the step he is on. I look at the instructions and at where he is at and for the life of me I cannot figure out where it went wrong, and yet the pieces he is trying to put together surely do not fit properly, kind of askew. I apologize for not being able to see the problem and this is what Luke tells me.
“These are bad Lego instructions and you know what I am going to do? I am going to write a letter to the Lego people and tell them that these are bad instructions”
Now, for those of you that know me well, you will understand that this is EXACTLY what I would do in his situation, and for those of you that don’t, well all you have to do is take a gander at my favorite blog posting from my personal blog.
