Y ~ Yawn

     If there is one thing that I do not enjoy in life it has to be, being bored, finding myself dazed with my eyes glazed over is the worst. No wonder swooning was so popular back in Victorian days. Women were probably just extremely bored.

     Today, since I love lists so much I will be sharing a list of things that bore me to pieces, or in a less dramatic way of wording it; a list of things that make me yawn.

Yawn Inducing Things.

Mechanic talk ~ My Dad is a mechanic, a rebuilder/fabricator of semis, and my brother loves the profession as well so every evening if I am not careful I find myself bored beyond comprehension as Eldon and Dad discuss torque wrenches and the best way to remove a motor mount and a host of other things that I can't remember now, because of feeling dazed and my eyes glazing over.

Politics ~  I don't think that politics are ever a good idea to be discussed, period. In my opinion the word politics is just a fancy name for boredom.

Dishes ~  My most splendid dreams have a maid washing all the stacks of dirty dishes, or at least an automated dishwasher in them.

Public speakers ~ Not all public speakers, but most that I have listened to are dreadfully dull. The only excitement they offer is counting how many times they say "Uh" or "Um."

Algebra ~ Needless to say spending hours and hours of my life solving algebraic equations is boring.

History ~ I know I sound horrible when I say this but I can not stand studying History, how in the world is anyone supposed to remember all those dates anyway? It is a fact that massive History tests haunt my nightmares.

Medicare ads ~ Oh horrors! Do I ever dislike medicare ads, I know they are for the elderly but the way I think about the subject is that the elderly should be treated with a lot of respect, so naturally inflicting horrid commercials on them is not very nice or proper at all.

Though that is probably not all of the things that cause me to yawn that is all that I can think of right now. Until a later day I must now bid you adieu.


  1. everything your list are things I totally agreed with, though back in school days, I find that history and algebra to be so boring, I think I must have fallen asleep, though I'm sure it could have been a little exciting if only the teachers don't drone on like they too were bore with what they're teaching.

    have a lovely day.

  2. I'm with you on history and dishes. I believe that the only thing we learn from history is that we never learn from history. We continually make the same mistakes, only with an increasingly technological edge. Dishes? Not so much, although loading and emptying the dishwasher is a bit of a chore.

    I don't know about medicare ads; that's just an American thing; but I totally agree that over-65s should be treated with a lot of respect (I'll be 67 next month, so I guess I should declare an interest).

    As for the other things, my wife would agree with you on most of them; but isn't it good that we're all different? It would be so boring otherwise.
