Bored? Go Bang Your Head Against the Wall


Bored? Go Bang Your Head Against the Wall

Did you know that July is designated National Anti-Boredom Month? You might be surprised that there are people with entirely too much time on their hands—they make up such things as National Anti-Boredom Month.

July is great, man! Hey, it’s got the July 4th holiday, fireworks, nice weather, no school, vacations, mountains, beaches, parks, recreation, baseball, bike riding, boating, swimming, fishing, golf, tennis, backyard barbecues with hamburgers and hot dogs, potato salad, steaks and fish on the grill, reunions, parties—I obviously could go on. So, naturally, July is anti-boring! How could it be anything else? Talk about an obvious choice!

Do you wonder which month is the most boring? As far as we can tell, it hasn’t been determined. Some people say January; others February; still others say March, etc. It’s all in that “eye-of-the-beholder” thing. Like a flea market where one man’s junk is another man’s treasure. Your pick for boring may not be mine. That’s okay; it’s all right to be different.

We probably do agree that smartphones have made it impossible to be bored. A 24/7/365 news cycle won’t let us alone for even two seconds. I think the time may have come for a law that makes boredom punishable by being locked in a cell and watching paint dry, or being forced to go to the opera every night for six months without a break (if opera’s not your thing), or worse—being made to listen to politicians!

Modern boredom is the kid who has a computer, video games, a smart phone, and every toy known to man complaining to his mother, “But there’s nothing to do!” (Mom, take note: Tell him to clean his room, take out the trash, mow the yard, do the laundry, cook dinner, set the table, do the dishes, and not speak for a whole month!)

Bored? Some folks don’t have that option. Try living on the street without food, shelter or money! Try living in a third world country. Try living under a dictator who doesn’t care if you are alive, let alone bored! Try living where there is no clean, safe water to drink. Try living without TV stations, radio stations, newspapers or magazines, computers, the Internet, or smart phones! Try living where there are no libraries or books! Try living in the poorest nations of the world where there is no standard of living that is even worth discussing.

Bored? Join the military and serve the nation. Your days will be planned for you and you will be busy doing things with no time for boredom; sometimes those days might even be dangerous!

Bored? Join a big city police department in places such as Chicago, Los Angeles or New York City! There are all sorts of ways to overcome boredom. Doing something to help others is a step in the right direction! Fight boredom—and make a difference in July and all year long!
