A co worker and I were on a business trip to Minneapolis recently. After a stressful day of meetings, we opted to forgo another dinner with business-types making nice. Instead we hit that homage to consumerism, The Mall of America.
Neither one of us are clothes people, so that was out. We were perusing for a place to eat and enjoying a chance to walk around when I spotted that familiar yellow sign.
“Lego!” I yelped, before reigning myself in. Can’t be too immature around a coworker….
But, it turned out I need not have feared. My coworker was happy to go in and wander through. I was drawn to the build-your-own-mini kiosks, but kept holding back…until I saw her start diving in. We both had a grand time constructing minis and filling up pick-a-brick cups. She kept saying “this is SO what I needed after today.”
Yes, at well over 30, I totally played with and bought Legos tonight. It is the best fun I have had in a while. And I kind of think I may just keep my legos on my desk at work from now on. A little bit of de-stressing, creative play to keep my inner child entertained….
