I have previously mentioned how I tend to enjoy getting caught up in toy quests. I had been stalking the red bullseye for a couple of weeks looking for the series 9 lego minifigures. We had checked out the group online and agreed that there were some very fine offerings. (My daughter was not overly enthused with series 8.) Last week I finally broke down and clomped thru the doors of Toys R Us (shudder). Lo and behold! This made me happy!
I scoped out my work station and got straight to business. I usually start by feeling around in the packages to make sure that I have no duplicates, but then I start to get choosy and curious. For those of you who need my crash course in securing desired mystery lego minifigures, here it is: You know you are going to purchase at least one, so open the package and take out the little direction sheet that shows all of the available figures, as well as their accessories. This makes it much easier to figure out what you are trying to feel for. Oops, did a little bit of my nerd slip out there? Sorry.
I was so happy that I sent a text to my son, who I knew was having lunch in between midterm exams (just so you don't think I actually interrupted a class).
His response made me happy!
Uh oh, I feel a bit more geek rising to the surface as I responded...
(Seriously what valuable information could I remember if Star Wars Lego set numbers were not clouding my brain?) Anyway, just to confirm...
My quest made me happy. The fact that I got to be, in some very small way, a hero that afternoon made me happy. This mermaid made my daughter, and me, happy!
This excursion was followed by lunch with two lovely friends that also made me happy. I had a delicious salad that took up residence in my teeth...luckily, no photos there!
