I got home from work, and the boy wanted to play LEGO. And by playing LEGO, I mean playing with the LEGO box. I don’t know what’s up with him lately, but he’s really into taking pieces of paper, making them into weapons, and then taping everything to the floor or on the walls. Above, a spaceship created from an old LEGO box, butcher paper, and Scotch tape.

Seriously, I don’t know why busy daddy and I bother buying toys for our kid anymore. We should just go to the store and ask for the boxes. I imagine going to the LEGO store and telling the sales guy, No, I don’t need the toy inside the box, I just need the box. Really, my son is planning to throw the LEGO pieces in the garbage anyway, so I’ll just take the box. Yes, I’m happy to pay full price. For the box. Without the toy inside.
