A Foot-Mounted Lego Detector #25daysofwhatIwantforChristmas
by Gina Valley
I want a Foot-Mounted Lego Detector for Christmas.
I have a special talent. If there’s an AWOL Lego piece within 50 miles of me, I will find it with my bare feet. If it’s dark and I’m in my sons’ room, I’ll find all its friends, neighbors, and cousins, as well.
I once stepped on a rogue Lego piece in the auditorium at church. You know, the place where songs are sang, sermons are given, and there is no logical reason why a Lego would be present. It was a backwards Lego-miracle, a Lego-badacle, if you will.
I’ve stepped on those minions of evil so many times that I have permanent Lego-shaped impressions on the bottoms of my feet. My kids thought they were tattoos.
I told them they’re a sign I have children.
Like stretch marks.
Just once I’d like to be able to walk across a room in my bare feet without the nervousness usually reserved for landmine hunters.
Or, for a parent trying to unwrap a Snickers bar without alerting the children.
Hopefully, there’s a setting on the Foot-Mounted Lego Alarm to help with that, too.
Laugh Out Loud!
