I am in search of the “dull moment” that, supposedly, there never is one of. I like the idea of “never say never,” so we’ll just say I’m questing after that dull moment like it’s the Holy Grail. Except the moment it arrives, I don’t know what to do with it.
MUST.FILL.EMPTY.SPACE! My wife will tell me to sit down, “it’s NOT normal!” I’m not a great sitter. Then there’s my mother-in-law, and next to her, I’m a slacker. She not only is on her feet always and forever but there is no empty space. Silence does not exist. There is no such thing as pause. Really.
