  6. I’m a mad LEGO fan, so how about:

    You’re searching and searching for that tiny piece. The brick you search for always seems to elude you, until…you see it, at the bottom of the oversize Tupperware container you keep your collection in. You reach in, pinch it between two fingers, and draw it out! Triumphant, you place it on whatever you’re building, and go back to looking for more bricks.
