Is it a dreadful thing to be bored? It depends on the type of boredom. When I was little, there was no such word as bored, so I was never bored. But what if you actually are bored? There are various things that can conquer this feeling--blogging is one of them: hence this post, savvy?
So I'm here to tell you a few things to do when you're bored.
#1: Watch "Automatic Door Fail" on Youtube--nothing like watching a foreign engineering major trying to figuring out an automatic glass door.
#2: Go up to a random guy [preferably with longish dark hair] and ask him if you can hire him as your next party's Elvis impersonator. Videotape the reaction.
#3: Go to a department store and move all the "Caution: Wet Floors" signs to carpeted clothing areas.
#4: Go to a different department store and set all the alarm clocks in the aisles to go off at ten-minute intervals.
#5: Go up to a random person and ask them why "abbreviated" is such a long word.
#6: Go to your local Walmart and, when an announcement comes over the loudspeaker, assume a fetal position on the floor and yell, "No, no!!!! It's those voices again!!!"
#7: Ask the checker at H-E-B why glue doesn't stick to the inside of the bottle.
#8: Stand on a street corner and shout "Elliot" in a long, groaning, gravelly voice at cars going by. See how many people get it.
#9: Roll down your windows and blast "You Are My Sunshine" going down the center of Main Street.
#10: Go to Bath and Body works and make it a point to sample every single one of the perfumes.
So there you have it--10 things to do when you're bored. And if you take my advice, you won't be bored anymore!
