365 Writing Prompts:(YAWN)
What bores you?
There are a lot of things people do I feel are merely childish,it does not bore me, it irritates me. I’ve heard the word, “Bore”, many times when I was teaching, my kids in school complained they had nothing to do, they were bored, although there was work assigned to them not completed. I thought they didn’t know what the word meant. Surprisingly they knew the meaning, they were bored because the work was not exciting.
If I went along with them and said, yes Math is not exciting, because they cannot solve the problems, how can I help? it was becoming quite challenging to teach when I had to give them work that could be called interesting. I tried ways to catch their attention, it didn’t work.
What makes me “YAWN”? An uninteresting movie where the performers (a) lack the gift of acting, b), they think they are doing well, why else did they get the job,c) they are not even good looking.
A useless novel, and then there are parents who boast about their children whenever I meet them. These are some of the things I can think of.
