ONE LONG WEEKEND, FILTERED THROUGH THE EYES OF AN EXPENSIVE HOBBY AND A BUNCH OF THIRTEEN YEAR OLDS.

So I’m talking about the long weekend with my Year Eight class, and I mention I’m going to spend some time working on my Lego display. Which leads to discussing how yes, I’m a grown-ass man and I’m into Lego.

STUDENTS: What do you build?

I call up Google images and show them some displays from previous years’ exhibitions. Cue discussion of MOCs v sets and how I get to where I do what I do.

STUDENTS: How many sets do you have?

I tell them.

STUDENTS: How many pieces do you have?

I tell them. I also tell them how much my collection is insured for.

There is a *long* pause.

SMALL VOICE FROM BACK OF ROOM: …………… Are you mad?

You’ll learn, my sweet, summer child. You’ll learn 🤣🤣🤣
