    My Best Friend Has To Shut Up Sometime

    I love my best friend "T" but he talks too much. He knows this, but STILL every day we are talking about him for HOURS. Ehh. when we're in the car, I seriously wrap the car belt around my neck (half of the time not thinking) because im so bored out my mind. When I'm not doing...

    Say No More, Please!

    "Say no more, please!"... That's what I keep on telling to myself when I happened to be with an ego-centric person... So annoying to be with a person who loves to talk much about himself/herself... He/She don't even give me a chance to talk or respond to whatever he or she's...

    Omg I hate the regular conversations

    that go "What are you doing?" "Nothing." "HBY". I just try to avoid all those messages. Is this really what society has come to?

    My Mind Is Some Where Else

    Yeah it's true I can't seem to pay attention during a boring conversation. And this is why I don't talk to my grandparents, just kidding their dead. But yeah if there's one thing I can't take is a boring *** conversation. So if you ever talk to me you better make it really...

    Boredom

    I have a friend who likes to talk about herself. (blah, blah, blah, blah, etc.) I find myself staring into space, working my mind to something else. And there, I'm nodding my head in her babble, saying : "oh's", 'really?', 'yeah', 'hmmm'. In time she notices it. And there, I look...

    It happens a lot when someone isn't talking

    Outer Space.

    If someone is talking to me, or if I am in class and my teacher is doing a boring lecture, I will often daydream, or space out. Especially if the conversation just makes no sense, my eyes will wander off elsewhere.

    The Bear

    Like a bear Out into the air I stare. A conversation should Say everything it would, To any hearer that could. Boredom settles in, Playing on the mind worse than gin, A grimace never a grin! Talk of things interesting, Talk never depressing, Speak kindly and stressing.
