I'm bored! Bored? That's a good thing. There is an old saying: May you live in uninteresting times. That's because interesting times are full of chaos and turmoil. Uninteresting times are safer and more tranquil. Chaos and turmoil sounds more fun.
Let's not bother gramma right now, Nelson. She's busy worrying. How come? Well, she is convinced that the things she worries about the most never happen. So she feels it's up to her to keep worrying about them to make sure they never do happen. It's a lot of responsibility. Who knows what kind of chaos would break loose if she were to stop worrying? Back in 2000 she worried the Y2K bug into oblivion. Now she's working on preventing the end of the world in 2012. Good job, gramma!
