Since I have only one sure mandate from those who oversee the Marvelous Work and a Wonder® … to give the MWAW Radio Talk Show every week … I’m fine with missing a couple of days of my daily journal. :-)
Boredom is probably the thing that affects most people’s happiness more than any other affect emotion. It will be the central topic of this Sunday’s radio show and will cover the subject as it relates to our true existence as the most advanced life forms of any kind or matter that exist.
Get your questions ready!
Here are some definitions to get your mind thinking.
the state of feeling bored : the boredom of afternoon duty could be relieved by friendly conversation.
bored 1 |bôrd|
feeling weary because one is unoccupied or lacks interest in one’s current activity : she got bored with staring out of the window | they would hang around all day, bored stiff.
At no time, not even for a minute, have I been bored caring for my granddaughter. She’s a precocious little thing who acts very similar to how her mother acted at her age. The difference is, I’m not Dad; therefore, I’m on the other end of her attitude. Whereas, when my daughter was her age, I was the only one to whom she showed no attitude, not even a little bit.
I remember my daughter arguing pretentiously with her uncle Jody when he lived with us for a short time when Brittany was almost 3 years old. It was something to behold. Jody would antagonize her on purpose and Brittany would hold her own, although she seldom knew what she was talking about. Jody would go on to be a successful attorney.
It’s a joy reconnecting with my granddaughter at this time and seeing what her aunts and uncles are in for. :-) She also has a very sweet voice and sang a love song to her mother that lasted for about 10 minutes and consisted of only a few words: “Mommy I love you! I love my Mom!” I wondered if my granddaughter was trying to butter up her mom, but my daughter assured me that she often dedicated her 4 year-old sweet songs to her mom. :-)
