It is rare that I come up from the basement to assault the rest of my family with questions. But when some of life's big pressing questions need answers, I must ascend and ask the masses.
"Hey, Mom, I have something I need to ask you."
"Sure, is everything alright?"
"Well, I was digging around in the basement ... and I found something."
"Anyway... I did not know what ...exactly, you know, you might be planning or if you even had plans or were going to use them. But, I found a bunch of unopened Lego sets downstairs ... old ones ... and ... can I open them?"
"Good god, Michael, I thought this was something serious."
"This IS serious..."
"You're an idiot. Yes, go play with the Legos."
