As I told you before , my parents were not the kind of parents who you wanted to act bored around. As a matter of fact it was in your best interest to look busy when they came into a room. They believed in studying, chores, and playing out side. I did all of those things but sometimes I had run out of people to play with. Sometimes it was raining all day. And sometimes, I just wanted to do something interesting.
Once I gave up complaining, it was time to find an activity. The hardest part was finding supplies to make things. But, if I just used my imagination, I would come up with some great stuff. I think you can come up with some great stuff, too. Just open your eyes and look around your house!
When I was a girl there was heaps of time to do absolutely nothing at all. At the time I thought that this was the most unfortunate thing that could happen to anyone. I was so bored. That was when my mother told me that I must just be boring. I was flabbergasted. How could my mom say such a thing. Well, it turns out that what she meant was that it was MY job to amuse myself. What a life changing thought that has been for me.
I started looking around my house and I began to think of the things I enjoyed the most at school . Before I knew it , there were many projects to work on and much mischief to get into.
I hope that Mrs. Rennalls I’m Bored inspires you to become the most unboring person you know.
