“I’m Bored!” February 5, 2019

I learned early on that complaining to mom about being bored would back-fire.

Big Time.

Mom did not feel that it was her job to entertain us.

Her job was to feed us, clothe us, chauffeur us to doctor’s appointments, and admonish us if our moral compass fell short of the mark.

It was our job to entertain ourselves.

That’s why she had four kids.  So we could amuse each other.

Want to know what happened if we vocalized “I’m Bored!” around mom?

She would give us a chore to do.  Options on her hit list included: scrubbing toilets, weeding the garden, ironing handkerchiefs, cleaning up dog poop, etc.

Aah . . . that’s entertainment!
