Teachers’ day out


When a friend declared on social media that she was bored, the usual humdrum ideas flowed from others: Watch a movie, exercise, sleep, listen to music, colour your nails, count money, dance…
The ideas added to her boredom.
She put on her sports shoes, went for a walk, accidentally met her old friends and had a gala time visiting a coffee shop with them.
Beating boredom means different things to different people.
When a retired Indian politician was asked how he passed time, he shot back: “Why should I pass time? It will pass by itself.”
Teachers of a Dubai school complained that they were bored of routine and were taken on a fun trip to the desert by the management.
For a change, the teachers turned children and had fun.
The organisers lined up prizes.
“Anyone on high heels can collect a prize.”
No one expected anyone to visit a desert picnic on high heels. Surprisingly, an elderly teacher grabbed the prize.
The organisers posed another tough challenge.
“Anyone who has the photograph of her mother-in-law in her wallet can pick up a prize.”
There was pin-drop silence.
Lo and behold. A teacher stepped forward, presented her MIL’s photo and grabbed the prize.
Visibly, there were many envious faces around.
