This should be my first post in this categorie. Every story starts somewhere, somehow and my started in Lego® Store in München, entirely planed. Making a small detour and stop at Lego® Store when driving eight hours through Europe for visiting friends is almost mandatory, don’t you think so? This was the first time that staff in Lego store really annoyed me. Whilst mostly friendly and accommodating in this case all four asked me if I need assistance in just 5 minutes being there. I was the only customer at that point, store is not that big… So I hit a “Build-a-Minifigure” stand to make them clear to leave me alone. And so it started. Peace by peace, association by association and everyday life stories of minifigures came to light.
After a busy week in April, I drifted towards Ljubljana LEGO® Certified store in late morning hours. Time in the day to enjoy tranquil environment for browsing the shelves, chat with interesting staff and check supply of pieces in “Build-your-own-Minifigure” stand without distraction of loud children (some parents consider toy shops as play ground for their lively kids).
Today’s post could be addressed Don’t judge book by it’s cover, since three interesting examples of its kind accompanied me home.
Aunt Edna spends most of her days in the rather classic role of pensioner. She gardens, cooks, drinks coffee with friends, looks after her grandchildren and complains about “today’s youth”. Not a lot of people know that she is an amateur arachnologist and an enthusiastic sailor, who rarely goes anywhere without her pet Spider. What do you think her sailing boat is called?
When work takes you to Vienna it would be a shame not to stop at a LEGO® store.
