Now, this shouldn't seem like too difficult a task. We bought an Ikea-style kit with instructions written for illiterate people.
But it took us more than a month to complete. From Labor Day until early October, a half-constructed bunk bed sat in the kids' room like the replacement Death Star in "Jedi."
I felt even more inadequate after visiting the Empire State Building, where they tell you that the tower was constructed at one story per day.
So I thought I would compare our assembling of a bunk bed with the construction of a building considered to be mankind's greatest architectural wonder for much of the 20th century.
See if you can guess which is which!

Let's not dwell on which of these projects was the the greater achievement.
