Lego and the Heart


I was going to write about how mothers become even more irrational when it comes to kids birthday parties, but in light of recent controversy I’ve decided against writing humour. 

Whilst it’s been proven by science that boys who play with Lego are less likely to murder when putting together Ikea flat-packs, new research obtained exclusively by Vidins indicates that when these boys grow into men, they become better lovers.

Here’s why.

Like Lego, every heart has rules. Instructions that make it up. Like Lego, every heart has a combination of parts that fit together to make it whole.

Every boy who plays with Lego knows that, to make the model correctly, you need to put the parts together in the right place, in the right order. You can’t skip over parts. You can’t leave bits out. Like the heart, everything has it’s right place. The model, like the heart, can’t be admired until it’s fully made. It takes patience, understanding and time to build a Lego model.

But like Lego, all you can do with a perfectly constructed heart is look at it. You can put it on a shelf, admire it, wonder what it’s like. You see, Lego, like a heart, is only fun when it comes out and plays with others. 

As every Lego-playing boy knows, when you mix your space Lego with your pirate Lego, things fall off your model. When your beautifully constructed heart leaves the shelf to mix with others, you might find bits fall off. Sometimes, it’s just something little – a light, a wheel, a door. Like a Lego model, sometimes your heart can get its wings broken. Sadly, sometimes someone will smash your little Lego model into pieces.

Like a heart, a Lego model can be put back together. You can collect the pieces, find a soft spot on your carpet in the sun and get back to work rebuilding your model, putting it back together as best you can.

The thing is, Lego goes best with other Lego. Every Lego playing boy knows that something isn’t subtracted when new Lego gets added to his collection. A heart, like a Lego model, is no fun when it’s hiding away, or displayed on a shelf. A heart goes best with other hearts. The bits just seem to click together (see what I did there 😉 ). 

So when you’re heart is feeling a little brittle, when it feels like the bits have fallen off you’re heart or it’s even been smashed, just remember this. Remember you’re heart is like a Lego model. It’s gonna get bits broken. But you’ll find another model who’s looking for someone to click with. Someone to share their Lego with you, someone who wants you to share yours with them.

And that’s why boys who play with Lego grow up and make the best lovers.
