You’re not BORED, are you?

You’re not BORED, are you? June 4, 2014

I’ve seen this picture here and there online, and I like it. I like it a lot. 


Of course, this would only work with kids who can read. Or, let’s face it, this would only work with kids who are not actively campaigning to drive you out of your gourd.  But it should work. It’s a good idea in theory, and some days, that is the best you can get.

However, it needs expanding. For instance, here is a version for my two-year-old (who, admittedly, has never been bored in her life):

Here is one for the dog:

And here is one for my husband:



Well, that should keep ’em busy.

    ummm,,,whats the *YARR mean(will I regret asking?) 🙂

    • donttouchme

      “According to the Dictionary of English Nautical Language Database, “yare,” also pronounced “yahr” and derived from the Old High German word, “garo,” meaning “ready,” refers to a well-designed, easy-to-handle boat. “Yar” is also connected to the Gaelic word, “garbh,” meaning “rugged,” which accounts for the naming of the River Yar on the Isle of Wight.”

        Oh, now you’re overthinking it. “Yarr” is just my standard “crestfallen pirate” comment, and it can mean any number of things; hence the asterisk.

    Well, thank the saints and angels that the dog’s “D” (dragged your hairy rear…) is also not your husband’s “D.”
