A drop of boredom
People told me that when I retired I would have long lazy days with nothing to do but stare at the view.
The prospect of doing nothing is fine for a day, a week or even a fortnight. The prospect of endless boredom sounds like hell.
Anyhows, I needn’t have worried.
They are all liars.
I don’t think I have been bored once in the last two or three years, or however long it is since I quit the Rat Race.
Today is a case in point. I have a few people calling at various times for various reasons. Some of ’em have called already but another is due any minute. My problem today is that I would love a drop of boredom.
Talk amongst yourselves.
Fuck it – “The data, collated from 6,300 current and former smokers by Pfizer as part of its Don’t Go Cold Turkey campaign, shows that 31 per cent of smokers admitted being saboteurs.” No bias there then?
Glad to hear you are not bored.
The thoughts of retiring make me really worried.
How could we be bored with stories like this in today’s papers ..Headlines “Quinn would ‘accept jail term” A little room in Dublin’s top hotel will do nicely I guess. It gets better his wife is just an housewife and should not have to pay back the bank €3 million as she just signs whatever she asked to sign. So begorra isn’t every housewife signing notes to get €3 million paid into their account every day.
Mossy – It’s a difficult station in life, but someone has to do it.
Peacock – If you want a real laugh, take a trip over to read John Waters and why we should pity the Quinns.
Grandad – Only having a laugh. How dare you insinuate that a global drug company would be dishonest. Thats shameful. You should state it explicity, they’d sell their own mothers.
Is that the Quinns from BallyK ?
John Waters is nothing more or less than the unadulterated and unbridled bastardization of human thought, just saying.
No Longer Disgusted – I’m glad you changed your mind. That’s the Quins from Cavan or Norn Iron [depending on your bankruptcy law preference]
Welcome JD! [*shit! That’s two JDs…*]. Indeed, an eloquent and rather precise description of our friend. We can say what we like about him too as he considers anything on the Interweb [or indeed anything he hasn’t personally written] to be unworthy of his time.
