Title: i'm bored(nephew)
Post by: Bolomark on July 29, 2011, 05:30:18 PM
My nephew came over and sat around saying i'm bored nothing to do.so he left.
a couple of minutes went by i grabbed a old camo plastic tarp10x10 and cut up some nylon rope in specific lengths.
rolled the whole bunch in the tarp walked to their driveway and thew it in their yard as i walked away i called my sister in law and told her to send him out there is something by the driveway.
1/2 hour later he was tying the rope up and trying to make a tent.i casually strolled over told him it look cool,and reminded him about the cub scout and boy scout manuals i had
given him,now he might make and tent and sleep out at night.(we'll see)
while he was working i never heard I'm bored ,imagine that.

That is really cool.  My father would always give me a chore to do if I told him that I was bored.  lol.... I was never verbally bored again.  But that gives me ideas for my future children.

That's for sure. It was not a good idea to even think 'bored' when my Dad was around.  ;)

Excellent!  Well done!
Next time, also throw over a knife and a stick. 
After that, it's fire.
You're on a roll! ;)

If my dad thought that I was going to be bored he had something for me to do. His favorite was to have me dig 4 or 5 holes and then he would go buy A tree and pick which ever hole it looked best in. Then I would have to go back through and fill in the un used holes. He now has alot of nice looking trees all over his property. ;D ;D
