I would like to submit to the internets a new term… Lincoln Logs.
As a kid I had a set of Lincoln Logs and they came with plans for all of the buildings you could make. My set probably had about 60 pieces to it, but the instructions included the buildings you could have made if only you had the 120 piece set.
Suddenly my 60 piece set seemed inadequate, and I abandoned my plans of becoming an architect which probably cost me millions of dollars.
I thought I had gotten past that, but now on the internet no matter where I go, I see what I could get if I just join…you know…whatever.com Prime. Suddenly, I’m playing with only 60 pieces again. If I just click here, suddenly I’ll have 120 pieces and I’ll be cool.
I shall call these reminders of my current inadequacy “Lincoln Logs”.
