I think that every major problem with society starts with boredom. From vandalism to alcoholism to murder, people just don’t know what to do with themselves when they have too much time on their hands.
My grandmother used to say that boredom was a luxury. She is right. And my very early bosses used to say, “If you have time time lean, you have time to clean.”
I think that’s true.
Right now, my life is très boring. I am figuring shit out. Writing. Reading. Whatever.
And I really thought it would be a good idea to take 365 pictures of my cat Emma, this year.
Ugh. This is why boredom is dangerous. It makes bad ideas seem good. And while the world needs more Emma, my master bathroom cabinets also need a good cleaning.
So that’s on my list for next week.
What about you guys? Anyone bored out there? Trying to figure things out? Did you do something stupid because you were bored with life?
