I think I might be quite possibly the most boring person in the world. One of those people who, when they speak, others look at as if to say, “Did you say something?” or “Um, really? How interesting” when what I said was not interesting, but they were just being polite. Inside they are wondering how much longer they have to pretend to listen, or when they will be able to go and organize the pantry or something.
I’m unfortunately so boring that there isn’t even any irony in it. I am not stupid and boring, so that if I told the story of stepping on a ping pong ball and causing Bunny Bixler to not complete her ping pong winning streak, everyone would look at me agog as if to ask, “Is she serious?” I’m not even like the boring guy who talks about insurance sales. At least that guy has a monotone voice that can help others sleep. I’m just a void, a blah.
This boringness of mine might be a good thing. If I committed a crime, all of the witnesses would forget what I looked like. “I think maybe she had blonde hair? Or maybe brown? I’m not sure.”
This is even assuming they noticed me in the first place. “I thought there was someone hanging around, but maybe I’m wrong.”
“The person might have been wearing a grey t-shirt. Or a black one? Can’t recall. Jeans perhaps? Or leggings? Dunno.”
Yep. Boooooorrring. That’s me in a nutshell.
Who or what do you love?
My daughters, horses, dogs, cats, and bunnies, Earth, trees, water, good writing, and even love itself.
Bunnies? Sort of like poop-producing stuffed cushions with legs? Oh well, it needs must be something — or life would lose all flavor, leaving us boring indeed!
Thurber’s rabbit drawings, now: “And rabbits descended upon them!”
Ah, but you’re certainly not boring on the Internet.
I am rather a fan of earplugs…
That proves my point: you can’t be boring if you’re an Earplugger!
