The Definition of Boredom

Today we had an systemwide inservice. The KIDS have Presidents Day off...the teachers are being punished with an inservice. Now, I need to tell you that I have 183/25 Continuing Education Units....so I don't need this inservice for the hours...so I thought...hey, dummy, schedule your annual visit to the OBGYN (failed...she does not see patients on Monday)...ok...no problem, schedule your yearly mammogram (no can do there either...can't be seen until 3:00 on Tuesday)...oh yeah....schedule your dental cleaning appt. (Nope...not even close - it will be Wednesday afternoon at 3:30). It seems that no matter how hard I tried I could not get out of this meeting....so I registered to attend....took a good book and my Bible Study lesson ....just in case. Well....just to let you know I read 13 chapters in my book during the four hours of torture we had to endure, and completed my Bible Study lesson too. I thought I would die. There was even a time there when I thought if I had a gun I would shoot myself...just to put myself out of the misery I was in. The Webster Dictionary definition of : bore·dom
Pronunciation: \ˈbȯr-dəm\ Function: noun : the state of being weary and restless through lack of interest. It should also have a post script that says see: our speaker. I have been teaching my classes the difference between the verb ser (which means to be) and estar (which also means to be). Ser is a trait that does not change easily....la señora es aburrida(the lady is boring)...using ser. I am sure it is her personality trait. BUT....yo estoy aburrida (I am bored)....using estar...this condition will change as soon as she dismisses us. My watch battery must be dying because the time is going by way to slow. What a perfect Monday!....NOT!

So sorry you had to have such a boring day! At least you got some reading in and you finished your lesson!

Hate you had to be subjected to a day or boredom, but tomorrow is a new day.
