One of the best professors I had in college declared that “the true intellectual is never bored.”
I , therefore, am not a true intellectual! However, I have developed a behavior to alleviate my boredom: I zone out. My body might be forced to remain in the boring situation, but my mind has left the building.
One regularly boring situation I experience is the poorly prepared homily in Church.
The homilist goes on and on, repeating himself, meandering around his topic, for much longer than necessary. That’s another good saying: “The mind can only absorb as much as the seat can endure.”
