My cat Wednesday has decided in the past two weeks that she would start sitting in my lap. I was completely charmed, as I have been her caretaker for eleven years and she has never done this. Then I remembered reading about a cat in a nursing home that used to go around sitting on all the people right before they died. The cat was completely accurate in predicting who was next to cross over; either as some grand gesture of comfort at that person's time of need or as a way to exploit his psychic abilities to win cash from the staff. So of course now I'm worried that my demise is imminent because this is 2020 and that is in no way the most irrational thought I've had this year. I will not be sharing with you what currently holds that number one position.
While I sit here and wait to become a corpse I could pass my time putting together one of these new Mega Construx Labbits. Frank Kozik's creation has had a lot of different iterations over the years, but never one that required so much involvement from collectors. Now you can be a small part of the history of the Labbit by building your own, which I'm sure will turn out way differently than anything you've ever attempted to build from IKEA. The joy I felt when I finally broke apart our entertainment center and threw it in a dumpster should be bottled and sold on every corner in America.
This construction set was designed and produced by the toy geniuses from Mattel Creations and will be available beginning today (Friday, November 13th) at noon eastern time only at https://creations.mattel.com/.
