Me: Hey, good news! I got a bonus at work today!
Wifey: Ooh, for what?
Me: I did some grungy work and was recognized for it.
~ 2 minute pause ~
Me: I just spent it.
Wifey: ?!? That was fast!
Wifey: Spent it on what?
Me: Action figures!
In my defense the email that informed me of the bonus also mentioned that people get more enjoyment out of such things if they spend in on a special meal, or getting something one normally wouldn't buy for themselves. Challenge accepted.
So now I have an awesome action figure coming my way, all to support my toy photography habit. True story. Don't blame me, blame psychology.
If such news of action figure acquisition by Yours Truly alarms you and are wondering if I am going to stop shooting LEGO, fear not. I have some large LEGO projects still in the works, and don't plan on stopping any time soon. I'm just branching out into new areas of awesomeness and joy.
Oh, in case you were wondering which action figure I bought...its a surprise. No Spoilers!
