1902It was around four years ago I think, I was living at my mums at the weekend. And I was quite into Lego from an early age, and this story is from when I was 17, so I was probably into it longer than I should have been.
I spent quite a lot of money on a childhood dream, and I built from scratch a Star Destroyer, 1.5 metres, from Star Wars. It was my pride and joy and it took me about a month of building it at weekends at my mums house. It was excellent, I loved it.
Once Id finished it I positioned it on a stand about two metres in the air in my room. After about two weeks I came back on a weekend to a sheepish-looking mother who said this to me. I could tell by the way she looked at me that it wasnt a harmless story.
I went upstairs and saw the cat had approached the Star Destroyer and decided to leap onto it, crushing it. I was left with thousands of bits of Lego, scattered across the floor.
