BORED! BORED! BORED!
Here it is, a beautiful Summer afternoon. I am getting to write and think, so let me tell you a story. I was at a loss as to what to do last night. I had worked enough during the day (I am striving for balance in my life), so I wanted to quit working for the day.
It was 10:15 p.m. What do you do at that time of day, er night? I couldn’t paint and sand the porch furniture because the lighting wasn’t good. I couldn’t read my book club book because my eyes were too tired. I could play computer games, but I wanted to interact with someone, and no one was on the games I play. I could spend time with Michael, but he wanted to play his computer game, so that wouldn’t work.
Super Lucky to the rescue! As I was walking from the kitchen to go back to work (since I couldn’t think of anything else to do), I saw Lucky out of the corner of my eye. He was sitting in our dining room watching me. Then he looked at the living room couch and back at me. That was all I needed. In his sweetheart way, he was asking me to cuddle with him on the couch. He didn’t need to ask me twice. 🙂 I had someone who wanted to snuggle and watch TV with me…and he never complains about what I watch, which happened to be the original Battlestar Gallactica series from 1978.
So what do you end up doing when you are bored? I would love to know. Do you snuggle with your pet?
