- When it was?
- Who you were with?
- What you were doing?
- Why did you feel bored?
Life is not always interesting and at times, quite monotonous. There was a time when I felt extremely bored and to stay in that situation became quite arduous for me. It was back then when I went to a family gathering and all the members of my family including the extended family members got together. Contrary to what I thought it would feel like, it turned out to be a vapid and irrelevant meeting for me.
So, I along with my parents and brother went to the gathering together. I was quite a gaiety to meet my cousins whom I hadn’t seen for a long time. However, my mirth and excitement went down the drain when my parents and brother went to a different room and I went to another one. Actually, while walking up to the room, I got a call from my colleague and hence I asked my parents to move forth and I shall follow. After the call ended, I could find a trace of them and lead myself to a room full of strangers. Since the gathering was supposed to be including my extended family as well, I sat there among them with an unnatural grin.
The conversation that followed afterward had no relevance to me. I couldn’t find a single strand to hold that could make me interested in that conversation. Moreover, none was bothered to include me in that conversation and I sat like a twerp there. Later, I came to know that they were not even my family members and I had got into the wrong room.
Eg.: I had a monotonous schedule. Hence, I changed it.
Eg.: The task at hand was quite arduous.
Eg.: Contrary to your belief, he is a good boy.
Eg.: It was such a vapid task that I had to leave it.
Eg.: We all were gaiety and excited to meet the new puppy.
