Born bored. But easily entertained.
When bored, cry or nap. Try crying first.
Entertainment will usually come to the rescue.
Growing older, less easily entertained.
Need games, shows, friends, television.
Want something to do every second.
Sit through a lecture? Practice with drills? No way!
Learn through video games. Entertain during class.
Kiss good old-fashioned learning goodbye.
Teach students to rely on constant entertainment,
Not to learn how to cope without it.
Make entertainment the norm, not the treat.
In the waiting room at the doctor’s office
What do we do? Get out the cell phone.
Text, call, email, games, internet, apps.
The television is the centerpiece of the living room.
This potato needs some entertainment, please.
More t.v.’s in the bedroom, kitchen, and garage.
Not being entertained at the moment.
Cell phone battery died. No magazines.
So bored. So unhappy. Nothing to do.
Being entertained right now, but still unhappy.
So used to this entertainment. Need something more.
Will it ever be enough? Will always crave more.
