Whatever you do, do NOT push the Bored Button. Absolutely not. I see your mouse hand hovering over it. I warn you, I will slap your hand. Maybe even use a ruler, like those nuns of my youth. I’m telling you this for your own good. If you click this button, you will never be able to return to life as you know it now.
(Ha, fooled you! The Bored Button to the left has been disconnected for your safety, but there is an active one at the bottom of this blog. Read these cautions before pressing the button.)
I was bored the other day. Really, really bored. I was so bored that I googled “bored” just for the heck of it. After all, you never know what you’ll find on Google.
I found the Bored Button.
Then I made the mistake of pressing the Bored Button. It was a true OMG moment. I was lost in an alternate reality. It was fun, even a little intoxicating. I found I needed to press it more and more often, like that button on the morphine pump they give to people in the hospital. Addicting. Mesmerizing.
Time slipped away from me. I jumped from reality to reality, tripping around inside the heads of so many other bored people. Whoever thought boredom could be fun? It was great.
So if you are bored, but only if you are truly bored, you can give it a try. Before you do, call a friend to come check on you and pull you back to this world. Set a couple of alarm clocks. Do anything you can do to anchor you here, because you’re going to have so much fun you won’t want to come back.
Don’t say I didn’t warn you. OK, go ahead and press the Bored Button. Bon voyage! Have a lot of fun.
