Here goes nothing

I’m a big fan of tedium, although I do admit that sometimes some things can be interesting in a good way. Like when you smell bacon and go into the kitchen to see what’s up. But most things are at their best when they excite no particular interest at all. Like, for instance, the weather, or your internal organs, or a person’s central nervous system. They’re best when they’re boring. Humdrum. Unobtrusive. And when the things you’d wish would stay boring suddenly make themselves extremely interesting, that’s where you run into trouble. Here’s wishing us all an uneventful new year.
