Fear of Boredom

By -

Ah get born, keep warm
Short pants, romance, learn to dance
Get dressed, get blessed
Try to be a success
Please her, please him, buy gifts
Don’t steal, don’t lift
Twenty years of schoolin’
And they put you on the day shift

The alarm I set for myself at 4:10 a.m. chimed, and I climbed out of bed to take one of my children to the airport. He’s off to a conference at Harvard, and we can look forward to seeing him again late Sunday night. Yet on Monday morning, at the more reasonable hour of 6 a.m., I’ll be driving him again to the airport to head to Costa Rica for a school trip.
