Welcome Back To School, Son

I get bored sometimes too, son, so . . . I get it.  I really do.  Heck, I’m bored right now, truth be told.  You don’t need my help in class at the moment, but I need to stay available in case that changes because that’s my job.  It’s not just an important job, it’s important to me that I do it and do it well, but perpetually thrilling it is not because I assure you that getting you a snack so you can keep your focus on class is never the highlight of my day.

It’s okay to be bored though.  Bored happens, and what you’re doing right now is exactly the right way to handle it.  You’re quietly keeping yourself busy while still paying enough attention that you know what’s going on so you can focus your attention fully when it’s needed.

Just like I am right now, in fact.
