A Facebook Status

By Me.

I hope I don't offend any friends or especially family with the following message. I need to share something. I can't understand how anyone can say "I am bored!" in this amazing age. It annoys me when I see it as a Facebook status or a text. How can you be "bored" while using a magical device that has at least a hundred uses, any of which can sufficiently entertain you? Or you could read a book - you know, those things that are printed on paper that are stored in libraries? They tell amazing stories about imaginary lands; you can't be bored with options like that in the world! Or if that's not enough, doesn't your mind keep you busy? Mine does. And if even that does not satisfy you, don't you have the outside world? The wonders of creation await you.

How can you be bored?

[inspired by Leo Tolstoy]
