Words for Wednesday - On Boredom


A generation that cannot endure boredom will be a generation of little men...unduly divorced from the slow processes of nature, in whom every vital impulse withers. - Bertrand Russell

I'm friends with a lot of younger folks on Facebook (children and teens from our church's youth ministry) and if I had a dollar for every time one of them posts in their status update:
Bored.
Borrrrredddd.
So Bored.

Or something along that line (and not forgetting all the misspelled versions: "board", "bourd", etc. which is another cranky post for another day), then I could comfortably retire. For a little while I wanted to say something like "Read a book!" but I gave up on that. I have better things to do with my time.

Don't be a little man (or woman)!
