I am the most boring kid you will ever meet

Hello. I don’t really know what to say because I’m so boring. I figured “hello” was a pretty standard greeting. So, yeah. I still don’t really know what to say…

Maybe I could talk about the weather. Last time I checked it was raining. Rain is pretty boring, you can’t do much in the rain, I mean, I wouldn’t anyway. I’m not a big conversationalist. I don’t really care too much for talking. I don’t really care too much for anything. Because I’m boring, and that’s what I do.

Helena is somewhat boring.

I would want to apologize for the boring conversations I have, but saying sorry would suggest that I actually want to keep this conversation going… and I don’t, because I’m bored.

Normally, when classmates try to talk to me, I like to stick with, “Hello, good, you? Cool,” and continue to stare aimlessly into the distance like I was before you disturbed me.

I’m getting bored just thinking about how boring everything is from my perspective. Just thinking about how bored everyone is going to get trying to talk to me is boring me. Now I desire to wallow in my own pit of self-induced boredness and look like I have a lot on my mind. And that’s the most boring part; I don’t have anything on my mind, ever. When people ask me what’s on my mind, I simply reply with, “Nothing.” And what’s so boring about that is that it’s the truth; the plain, boring, simple truth.

My parents think I’m boring. Everyone in my family thinks I’m boring. I’m pretty sure my dog thinks I’m boring too. I have nothing to say to anyone… and I’m too boring to play with my dog; therefore I am boring. I don’t prefer being boring, but I’m not sure how I would feel if I were exciting. I suppose it would change a lot of things in my life. But thinking about those things would be too exciting. And I am neither creative nor exciting, so I will not think about exciting things. Another reason why I am so boring.

If you are getting bored reading this, I understand. I’m getting bored writing this. I’m boring myself into a boring oblivion. I hope your life is not as boring as mine because you might end up writing a boring Community Voice piece like I. I do not know if I will ever break the curse of being boring, but if I do, I promise I will tell you I’m feeling well, or tired, or even alright when you ask me how my day is.
