Day 2585: I don’t want to bore you

I don’t want to bore you, but yesterday morning I heard  Stevie Wonder singing about not wanting to bore you either:

Personally, I’m not bored, at all, and I wonder why so many people worry about being boring. People are SO interesting, as I hope you can see in these photos from yesterday:



























I don’t want to bore you with it, but Michael cooked a new fish last night.

I don’t want to bore you with this story, but when I was in my first year at college, one of my professors told us on the first day of class that he would not remember any of our names and quoted a biology professor saying, “Whenever I remember the name of a student, I forget the name of a fish.”

I don’t want to you bore you with this, but I can’t remember the name of that new fish Michael cooked last night.

I don’t want to bore you with this, but

  • I get my teeth cleaned every three months because  I got endocarditis three times in my life,
  • I’m getting my teeth cleaned today,
  • I haven’t gotten endocarditis for ten years,
  • I’m seeing my cardiologist Dr. Deeb Salem next week about my very unusual heart, and
  • I’m doing fine, even if I worry at times.

I don’t want to bore you with it, but I’m in the photo at the beginning of this post:


I don’t want to bore you by quoting more lyrics of the Stevie Wonder song but “I don’t want to bore you with it, but I love you, I love you, I love you.”

  1. A late great friend of mine who was so charismatic that people either loved or hated him once said that what he would really dislike was being called boring. I was meant to have my teeth cleaned yesterday. It was cancelled because the hygienist was ill.

  2. everyone has a story, you just have to listen closely. it is virtually impossible to be a boring human.

  3. Luis Del Castillo

    Looking forward to seeing you in my office today, I’m sure I won’t be bored.

  4. I have worn red to join my colleagues for the spirit of Go Red day at the library Ann … but I can’t mark the occasions because I’m always the one taking the group photos. I hope that didn’t bore you too much.

  5. Stevie Wonder never bores me and neither do you, and I’m really curious about the name of that new fish. Also I find real enjoyment in boring meetings when I can sit and scribble about all kinds of things. Once after a meeting a coworker asked if he could have a copy of my “notes” so I gave him something funny I’d written about Daylight Savings Time. He said after that he wanted my “notes” from every meeting.

    • I want your notes from every meeting too, Chris. If I see that fish again at the new 99 Ranch Asian Market near us, I’ll take a photo for you.

    I found you in the heart post! Have a nice day, Ann

  7. I don’t want to bore you with this, but I just realized you get to choose a Husband valentine card this year! Woohoo πŸ’

  8. Somebody went to a lot of work cutting out stars! They did a great job.

    I hope your dental appointment went well.

    The answer to the question, I hope, is: sweets. 😊

  9. No one wants to bored with my health problems

    • It’s difficult to know how to talk about health problems without being boring, Jo-Anne. I suspect neither of us are. ❀

  10. You couldn’t possibly be boring, Ann. Just looking at the photos you’ve posted today it’s clear you have a busy and full life. I’m sure there’s a degree of routine, but never boring! πŸ™‚

  11. You could never be boring with your wonderfully colorful and creative posts, Ann! Hope your visit to the cardiologist goes well..

  12. I don’t want to bore you, but Harley should’ve been on that starry banner of wishes.
