Bored

I remember

bei

ng bored when I was a kid. It was different then. My body ached with boredom, and my brain swelled with nothingness. D

esperate cries of “I’m bored!” were met with deafening choruses of “Only boring people get bored”.

this is getting boring

Inevitably it was boredom which led me to build something out of lego, or slide around on the floor on a Dandy annual. Or draw pictures of humans with animal heads wearing jeans and trainers.

Now I find boredom all pervading. When I’m bored even the things which interest me are boring. It is my state of mind rather than the lack of stimulus. I am a boring person, and that’s why I get bored.

I am bored.
