Instructions Schmuctions

Susanne went garage sale shopping AGAIN.  She brought home another 10 items and I can’t wait to see what 10 items she plans to get rid of. 

That was our agreement so that our house didn’t just keep filling up.  Seeing as she goes every Saturday during garage sale “season”. Something comes in, something goes out.  I think the only thing that has gone out the window is that rule.

Regardless, she gets some great deals and for 2 dollars she came home with two tubs full of Bionicle parts, with NO instructions.

Who needs instructions.  Braedyn and I got four, yes FOUR Bionicles of our own making out of them.

There were leftover parts, but every man knows anything needing “some assembly required” always comes with extra parts.  Right?


  1. Oh, I can stick to the rule if you *really* want me to. I'll start by picking 10 things off of the top of your bedside table. Or maybe the shelf in the closet with the hodge-podge computer parts strewn about? Hmmm, decisions, decisions.

  2. Bedside table I agree with but random computer parts? I don't think you can get rid of those. Well, unless they're from the 90s and prior. But bionicle parts are for the **children** so they don't count anyway.

  3. Instructions? inSTRUCtions? We don't need no stinkin' instrukshuns!!!

  4. So, bionicles are basically the first step in a child's education of mad scientistdom?

  5. I am proud of you for not making them more anatomically correct.

  6. My son once inherited a huge tub of power rangers "megazord" parts, and we spent days trying to get them out together. We got all but one, which had us totally stumped, until he went to bed one night, and dreamed about it. he woke up the next day, jumped out of bed and put the damn thing together in 10 seconds.
