Next up in my continuing series on
the absolutely crazy things people will pay money for Maine Adult Education is…. LEGOS.
Those annoying little plastic toy pieces we’ve all stepped on and paid the price.
And while there have been some other ridiculous classes…
You’re never too old to learn…. Spoons.
You’re never to old to learn…. Potatoes.
You’re never too old to learn…. Ukulele
You’re never too old to learn…. Chakra Toning.
You’re never too old to learn…. Mindfulness.
You’re never to old to learn…. Tin Cans.
You’re never too old to learn…. Knotweed Flutes.
You’re never too old to learn… Succulent Picture Frame.
This one, and it’s
how the hell can we make this nonsense sound like a legitimate college course description really made me laugh.
Oh, it’s a facilitated process? Well, that explains everything.
And they use specially selected LEGO elements! Wow.
Does that mean the red ones… or the green?
The group discussion would be interesting to hear. Problem solving and decision making? Give me a break… exactly what wisdom will you gain?

Mr. Potato Head is not the first thing that comes to mind.
And while I love a good spud with my steak as much as the next person…
I can’t say I’d want this bigger than life fellow greeting me at my door every night.
But I’m old enough to remember this creepy vintage playground Potato Head.
And stand by my statement.
No thank you!
The husband had been sputtering about one for a year, so I knew ….
Naturally he had to have the biggest one they sold…

Men and their toys.
Driving women crazy since time immemorial….
