I spent about a week getting the two million five hundred thousand studs (Lego coinage) needed to buy the doubler. The quadrupler was more quickly purchased. Sam recently unlocked a new one and came shrieking in to inform me, “Mom, now we can save up for the EIGHT-dupler!”.

“Tights are so the same as pants.”
“I wish you liked the Thompson Twins, Mom. Then we could listen to ‘Lies, Lies, Lies Yeah’ together.”
“Every time I cough, my chest hurts right HERE.” [jabs herself in the boob]. “Ow.”
