"I'm Bored."

You're bored. You're sitting on your bed... at your desk... on your couch... and you can't believe how mind-numbingly bored you really are.

Since when did that spot on the wall become so interesting? And that speck of dust. You really should do something about that. Maybe you should get something to drink. You are pretty thirsty after all. A nice tall glass of water might be good.

Could take away boredom for a whole minute. That just leaves... Oh... The rest of the day, but hey! You wasted that whole minute getting a glass of water. Time's sure flying by!

Now that water's sitting in your belly and you're still bored. Maybe you should just count all the bumps coming down from the ceiling...

Okay, that's when you really need to say enough. I mean, come on. Counting the bumps on the ceiling? Is that really how you want to be spending your day?

Well, if it is, carry on!

But if you're just doing it because you have nothing better to do, then you should stop. Seriously. Because I'm sure that there are better things that you could be doing right now than counting the bumps coming down from the ceiling.

Like read a book?

And it's not nice if you laughed when I said that and decided to go back to counting the ceiling bumps. Because reading can be really fun! I know that I love it!

So tell me this. Are you really entertained by those bumps? Huh? Because reading a good book can be way more entertaining than counting them, I can tell you that much!

So the next time you're bored (and you know it's going to happen!), why don't you consider picking up a good book and reading it?

Oh, I get it! You're not sure where you can find a good book and have simply been stumped this whole time! Why didn't you just say so? Echelon Press has some great books if you're looking for one! So get reading!

Or I suppose you could just go back to counting...
