We all get jealous from time to time– what wakes the green-eyed monster for you?
I do believe jealousy is a trait unbecoming for anyone, yet we cannot help it. They say we cannot be complete without it.
I’m embarrassed to admit I was jealous on many occasions, it was nothing important, when I think of it now I say to myself it was so childish of me!
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.
Write an anonymous letter to someone you are jealous of.
This is an unusual prompt. I do not think I’m jealous of anyone as far as I can recall. Even if I was why would I write an anonymous letter, it will be so childish of me.
I have read awesome poems by poets who for some reason or the other ,did not like to see their name in print. I have no problem with it.
To write a letter to someone who I’m supposedly jealous of makes no sense. Sorry this topic is not a good one!
