    When I was a little kid, I distinctly remember going into the kitchen and confronting my mom with, I’m bored.

    I’m not sure where a log the path of 7 kids she was, but probably at lead 4 of us at the time, so had her hands pretty full.

    As I recall, she didn’t bat an eye, and responded, That’s your fault.

    I have rarely been since. Certainly not since leaving a regular job behind 24 years ago. Which was, after all, the whole idea of self employment. To not be bored, as I had a solution.
