Dream Job

When I was a kid and people asked me what I wanted to do later in life. My definite answer – that is, before I figured how fun it was to tell grown-ups that I’d love to become an international drug dealer, hit-man or dictator in a small African country… my answer used to be that I’d love to become an official Lego set designer (Master Builders it seems they are called).

Whatever the hell that meant: maybe the guy who designs new models to be displayed on lego boxes in supermarket every year and make these ubiquitous construction booklet that go with each box… or the one who decides whether to introduce glowing red bricks or black sliding bricks in next season’s Lego collection…

Yea, that sounded like a job I could handle.

Anyway, even my innocent and stupid young self could barely believe there were actual people paid to design and/or build Lego stuff, somewhere in an imaginary world where swimming pools come filled with lego bricks and you just need to fill a form to receive three hundred new 3 by 1 yellow bricks the next day…

Well… apparently, such a job does exists…
