Harry Didn't Think His Life Was Boring--What About You?

According to this Blogthings quiz, my dad had a boring life; however, it wasn't boring to him. Even though every day was pretty much the same and he generally stayed home, he was very happy and content and often said he never got bored. Because he did everything slowly, he never seemed to get done everything he hoped to do in a day.

Harry always had several projects in the works such as cutting the grass, fixing something, indexing his magazines, reading the newspaper, cleaning the litter boxes, feeding his cats, reading his mail and paying his bills. On rare occasions he would even straighten up something or clean something!

You Live a Boring Life

You aren't necessarily a boring person, but you've fallen into living a pretty boring life.

Somehow you've gotten yourself stuck in a rut, and life just isn't that interesting anymore.

You need to start acting and stop thinking so much. Just go for it, and don't let yourself come up with excuses.

The only way to make life less boring is to start living it. Let go of your hang ups. Go out and have an adventure!

I don't think my life is boring... but others might! What is boring and not is so subjective, don't you think?

I don't think any of us live a boring life. Any day alive in this great world is a great joy in itself.

Jude said...

I seldom get bored because I can amuse myself and spend time just thinking which entertains me. Some may think I live a boring life, but it's mine to live the way I see fit and if it doesn't bother me then why should I care if it bothers someone else? I really hate when I hear someone say they're wasting their life, the only wasted lives are those that don't appreciate it and try to take it away from someone else.

The things Harry did may sound boring to others. That was the way my grandma lived her life and she wasn't bored either, because she always told us the she enjoyed doing those things.

You Live an Exciting Life

You are anything but a bore. You make sure that life is full of excitement.

You have an adventurous spirit, and you don't like to sit still for too long.

If you feel like doing something, you don't think about it. You just do it.

There's no way you could ever live a boring life. There's too much to do and not enough time.

This is right on the money for me. There's just not enough time to do everything.

Have a terrific day. :)

I love my boring life. It's just how I like it. Drama free.

Sometimes, boring is happy and good. I love boring sometimes. I'm sure your dad was far from boring.

I'm way too busy to be bored!

Karen & Gerard Zemek said...

LadyFi: I agree, very subjective!

Tammy: What a great outlook, but I do think some people have more dull lives than others.

Jude: True, life is given to be appreciated. It's up to us to make it count and do just that.

Liza: Bingo! As long as you do things you enjoy, life isn't boring.

Sandee: Thanks for taking the quiz! I think it's fun to see the different results. I also find it interesting how sometimes these quizzes are right on and other times way off. I usually feel like there's so much I want to do and just not enough time.

Tina: I like calm too, drama free is good!

Mrs4444: I thought he'd get bored just staying home every day, but in the winter especially, I find myself wishing I could do the very same thing! LOL!

Homestay Mama: Good for you! My dad was the same way, or at least he thought so.

Maria said...

I must be boring too. My life sounds a lot like Harry's. However, I prefer to think of it as being content with who I am and what makes me happy :)

Karen, author of "My Funny Dad, Harry" said...

Maria: I agree, I feel the same way. I have enough variety to suit me and I am content for the most part.

Grayquill said...

Well isn't that nice. I like your dad's attitude and I think I like him.
