Boring Man

"Boring Man" will not be confused with "Burning Man". 

Boring Man goes to quiet places with few people. Boring Man does not attract attention to himself. Boring Man reads books, even history books and theology. Boring Man likes his desk and still writes letters on paper and sends them to people with stamps. Boring Man likes to wear suits and ties and is appalled that adults wear pajamas when they travel by plane or train. Boring Man likes black and white photographs.


Boring Man collects fountain pens and considers the best paper options to use for writing and doodling. Boring Man keeps a journal - several, in fact. Boring Man loves to write and watch documentaries.

Boring Man would rather sit at home with a strong cup of coffee than go to a festival; or to sit at home in the evening with a dry deep red wine or fragrant bourbon than go to a movie. Boring Man loves sharp cheese and crackers.

Boring Man loves the smell of wood and sawdust piled up next to the table saw.

Boring Man likes sitting on the deck with his family by the fire listening to bard owls at night. Boring Man is fascinated by hummingbirds and fireflies

Boring Man likes reading his Bible and going to Church. Boring Man likes visiting art museums and historical museums - he even likes reading the little placards next to the exhibits.

Boring Man loves to see his family and friends smile.

Boring Man doesn't say much, and he likes it that way.
