If you ever decide to build yourself a gun out of LEGOs, be sure not to flash it by the window of your office in case nosy neighbours peek in.
If you happened to be walking by my office last night, you may have noticed a little police activity: 6 SWAT, 2 uniformed officers, 2 undercover and a chopper in the air. I've since been told that the surrounding streets were blocked off with five cop cars in total, two ambulances, and a dozen cops all taking positions of cover around the office. Ya, I'm a little embarrassed to say this was all for me, as last night I got arrested by the SWAT team because of a Lego gun.

Here?s the story?
A few weeks ago, I purchased a kit online to build a replica gun out of Lego. It doesn?t do much (other than clearly look real), but I?ve always been a fan of Lego so I decided to pick it up. I wish I had a decent reason for purchasing it, but I don?t. For shame, I suppose.
It arrived yesterday and at the end of the day, I decided to put it together. I literally assembled it, handed it to a co-worker (who promptly broke it) and then put it back in the box.
The SWAT arrived shortly thereafter.
