My nephew and his parents came to visit yesterday. We played with my Lego for… 6 hours? It was quite a while at any rate. He had a heck of a time. He’s not allowed to actually play Minecraft so his understanding of what it is is cobbled together from outside sources. It makes how he generates his stories very entertaining because they vary from correct to wildly inaccurate. I was very amused by his imaginative play. We also played with my spooky sets and the Scooby Doo sets, which was no less interesting. He has a habit of framing everything in video game terms but he hasn’t really played a lot of them, so those things are also just slightly off. He only gets to play video games as a treat when they go to places with arcades and such, so he’s not unlike a child of the early 80s trapped in the modern world. Video games are still something you have to go to instead of just having them with you all the time forever. I think that’s part of why he’s so much more imaginative than other kinds in our family who always have their phones out though. It will be interesting seeing what he comes up with as he gets older and starts making more Lego projects out of his own mind.
Anyway, he wore me out with his endless energy, but I got a nap in and made this page. It’s up later than I wanted but sometimes that’s just how things happen. Anyway, if you enjoy the comic please consider supporting it via the links above and I’ll see you Monday I guess, unless we meet out there on the wide wide internet.
