Moms, teachers, husbands, or wives . . . in your lifetime, you may have heard someone say, “I’m bored” or “This is boring.” I can recall such a situation on several (many) occasions when I was faced with someone or something that spoke of or demonstrated boredom. A few famous folks had a few words to say about the subject.
|This dog was bored…Not any more.|
“The Beatles saved the world from boredom.” –George Harrison.
|Somebody, get that cat a toy!|
“Only boring people get bored.” –Ruth Burke.
“Boredom comes from a boring mind.” –Metallica
Sometimes I find myself in a boring situation, one that I must tolerate for a while. For example, a speaker or lecturer that drones on and on in a monotone, but I am required to be there, can’t leave till it’s over. What’s a person to do? What would you do?
Boring: not interesting, tedious
Boredom: a state of feeling bored (that is a boring definition)
Most adults that I know don’t have time to be bored. In fact, they might welcome a boring day. Maybe “boring” isn’t as bad as we think. Would lying on a beach with nothing to do be boring? Let’s find out. Bring it on!
Have a terrific Tuesday.
Thanks for stopping by.
I have always believed bored people are boring themselves. When a child/person says "I am bored," I respond by saying Do something creative or productive. Comes from being raised by a person who said find something to do or I will find something for you to do.
Ah, yes, Georgia. Now that you mention it, I remember those words. They worked well, didn't they?
