The student art exhibition is taking place until May 26. I volunteered to work in the gallery for two shifts and today was my first go at stewardship. Visitors to the gallery were very few and so I became bored and restless within about 20 minutes. After surveying all of the student work, I sat down and crossed and uncrossed my legs a few dozen times. I picked up my book and then put it down. I riffled through the desk drawer…looked for teabags in the back room…got a drink of water…ate a banana…picked up the book again and put it down…made a grocery list and then stopped…heaved a heavy sigh and texted AP to tell him that I was bored.
It was Blaise Pascal who said,“All of humanity’s problems stem from man’s inability to sit quietly in a room alone.”
One thought on “Exhibit 1”
Go to the toilet, or WC as it is called. It never fails that somebody shows up when you can’t do anything about it.
