I’m not sure why but I’ve developed a dislike of the word boring. When young I’d get bored but haven’t for decades.

Political pundits and morning show hosts whine about a politician being boring which is why, they drone on, he/she isn’t a good candidate. Vision, intelligence, ethics, spot-on decision-making take a back seat. Some once praised a recent president for being hilarious and when, in a recent speech he was no longer, they complained that he was not amusing, energetic and vibrant—in fact, he was boring. Kiss of death!

Must we always be amused? Have you met slick-mouthed people who can sell butter to a dairy who are useless doing their jobs? They drop more balls than beau mots. I have stories….

It helps if a teacher isn’t boring. But we don’t all agree about that. I remember one—Dr. Blackwood in college—who put others to sleep yet his words resonated with me.

In addition to deadlines, obligations and chores, there is so much entertainment at our fingertips from streaming services with all range of series and films and podcasts covering cooking and philosophy to politics and gardening as well as news shows that dissect every angle of the political and international landscape and thousands of digital games.

There are so many books to read or museums to visit or walks to take or languages to learn or trips to enjoy or recipes to master or friends to meet or dogs to walk or children to coach in addition to people to help—and of course, there is work or homework. So where is there time for boredom? Do you get bored?

    Linda on Facebook: Will admit to following routine/getting in a rut on occasion, but never bored.
    As for opinions…everyone can have one but doesn’t make them gospel!

  2. Jeanne Byington Said:

    Linda,

    Gospel is the perfect word because some follow others’ words as though they were gospel, never questioning. That’s the scary thing.

    The world is our tea cup. Never get bored living/enjoying life with my dear husband. Each day is precious. We always do not have to be doing an activity to be happy!

  6. Jeanne Byington Said:

    BC,

    I agree. That also goes for folks not fortunate to have a love companion with whom to share their life. I look forward to days without planned activities as unplanned ones can be even better!
