40 BEFORE 40: JENN THE BUILDER

37. Buy and build a simple Lego kit. An airplane or car. Whatever. I was never really interested in Legos, but all my nephews just absolutely love them. My younger sister, Becky, was the one who was a fanatic about Legos.

HOLY COW! DID YOU SEE HOW MANY PIECES IN THIS R2D2 LEGO SET? OVER 10,000 PIECES! ALTHOUGH HAVING AN R2D2 MADE FROM LEGOS IN MY PLACE WOULD BE PRETTY COOL …

AS MUCH AS I LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT THE LORD OF THE RINGS, I’M NOT SURE I COULD SHILL OVER $100 TO BUILD THIS LOVELY HOBBIT SET.

SO, I PICKED UP THIS SIMPLE LEGO TRAIN A FEW MONTHS AGO BECAUSE IT LOOKED EASY TO ASSEMBLE AND THE PRICE WAS PRETTY AFFORDABLE.

LOOK AT ALL THESE PIECES! ACCORDING TO THE BOX, I HAVE 56 PIECES TO WORK WITH. I DON’T REMEMBER MY SISTER’S LEGO SETS BEING SO COMPLICATED.

WOOT! I THINK I JUST ASSEMBLED THE FIRST PART OF THE TRAIN! ALL. BY. MYSELF. I THINK MY NEPHEWS WOULD BE PROUD OF ME — OR EXTREMELY EMBARRASSED.

THE WHEELS ON THE TRAIN GO ‘ROUND AND ‘ROUND. ‘ROUND AND ‘ROUND.  I’M PRETTY PROUD OF MYSELF AT THIS POINT DURING THE ASSEMBLY.

37.LEGOC

HONESTLY, I REALLY BELIEVE THIS MIGHT BE MY FIRST-EVER LEGO SET I EVER ASSEMBLED. I REALLY DON’T REMEMBER DOING THIS AS A KID. I WAS PROBABLY TOO BUSY READING BOOKS.

TOOT! TOOT! ALL ABOARD! MY TRAIN IS COMPLETE! ISN’T IT PRETTY? WHAT SHOULD I DO WITH THE EXTRA PIECES? AND SHOULD THERE BE EXTRA PIECES? HMMMMMMMM.
