Debs: Today I tagged along with Errol on a Lego Adventure! I’ll let him explain why…
Errol: My birthday! My birthday! I want an AT-AT cake, so I went and found some instructions for the LEGO Mini AT-AT which they don’t sell anymore. However, I don’t have all the parts, so I needed to go to the LEGO store!
Errol: EEEEWWW! Why show a photo of me with sweat marks? THANKS Debs.
Debs: I liked your expression 😀 We missed the exit off the 427 because Errol was talking about something or other but we ended up at Sherway Gardens eventually and found the Lego Store. Yeahhhh, Lego!
Errol: Quit tuning me out when I talk to you!
Debs: Unfortunately, the wall didn’t have the very specific random parts that Errol needed, which was sad because the way you buy the pieces there is totally cool. You pay per cup – just fill it up! We showed the specs to one of the Lego guys who had never ever seen those pieces before.
Errol: I needed the parts for the legs. Remember the Doc Ock character that LEGO had? The arms on him, those I needed to make the mini AT-AT legs.
Debs: The online, virtual wall didn’t have the stuff, so we walked around trying to find that part in another set. We couldn’t find that one piece anywhere though.
Debs: Then Errol got distracted by the shiny things. But…seriously, there was more Star Wars Lego in that store than anything else. Loved it!
Debs: We temporarily gave up and found lunch. This is when I asked Errol if he had searched on eBay or Amazon.
Errol: No. I need the AT-AT in 10 days! That’s when the party is.
Errol: Look at that burger! It has peameal AND an egg in there! This burger is AWESOME!
D: Okay, I’ve taken pictures of you stuffing your face.
E: But…but…you have to make sure the EGG is in the picture!
Errol: Debs has a picture of herself eating a veggie burger. But she won’t show it. They forgot the guacamole so she had to go back and get some of the green stuff!
Errol: While I was waiting for the burger, Debs was wondering what peameal bacon was. She didn’t know. Heck, how does one explain peameal bacon? I eat it, I don’t know it’s location on pig anatomy.
After lunch we had to get back. I was disappointed because I couldn’t get the parts I wanted. It was an adventure of fail. The LEGO store was cool though, that’s for sure.
Debs: Oh come on, it was fun! And you got to hang out with meeeeeee!
Errol: However, all was not lost. I still wanted an AT-AT and so I improvised. I had enough pieces to make my own. And here it is!
Errol: In the end, I didn’t need to go to the LEGO store at all. Wait. What am I saying? Of course I need to go to a LEGO store!
