100 Word Challenge: Boredom

I hope that this change in seasons will give me the kick I need to get motivated… to do more than sit on my arse and binge watch Netflix.

Well, I am crocheting but that takes very little effort.

It’s been rainy around here, so even it I was so inclined, I wouldn’t go outside for fear of melting. I don’t like the wet, or cold, or humidity or… did I already say “wet”?

Seems like all I can manage is to make a cuppa chai tea then plant myself on the couch with my yarn and hooks, and watch hours of police procedural television.

Even my new carpet scrubbing gadget has lost some its luster now that I’ve manhandled the worst of the spots.

All this is to say, “sorry to be late with the 100 Word Challenge.”

“I’ve got a great ambition to die of exhaustion rather than boredom.” ~
Thomas Carlyle

This week’s word is:


What to do:

Using “boredom” for inspiration, write 100 Words – 100 exactly – no more, no less. You can either use the word – or any form of the word – as one of your 100, or it can be implied. Include a link in your post back here, and add your story to the Mister Linky list. If you don’t have a blog, you can leave your submission in the comment section, or as a Facebook status post. Remember to keep spreading the love with supportive comments for your fellow Wordsters.

  1. It’s very rare, I might just be overwhelmed 
Can never be compared to random unannounced sick days
When hysterical play is only rehearsed 
Boredom is the complete opposite 
An enemy pretending to be a friend 
Nothing to do, nowhere to go
A stage of depression, neglecting the thoughts in my head 
Bored from overthinking, of how life should be spent
The plague of boredom has struck again
But it doesn’t happen often, so no need to be frustrated 
Allow me to reminisce 
What was I contemplating, past or future events
Interesting I’ll be back at square one 
Boredom strikes Again
