Ennui-A feeling of listlessness and dissatisfaction brought on by a lack of occupation or excitement.
Some days are like that! I know that I can identify with the feeling…at least on occasion, but did you know that sea gulls could experience ennui? Apparently this gull, perched on a pylon on the East 9th Street pier,* knows what I’m talking about.
*The 9th Street pier is less than a block from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, Ohio. Most people visiting the area don’t experience ennui, but gulls apparently aren’t excited by the history of rock and roll!
For the Record
- Exercise: Not a lot of exercise today. I only walked 3428 steps, approximately 1.6 miles.
- Weather: A mixed bag! The sun shone most of the day, but the morning temperature was only 43 degrees. It definitely felt more like winter than spring. However, by evening it had soared to an almost balmy 55 degrees. (Occasionally I exaggerate.)
- Yesterday I was
complainingmoaning about how tired I am of “grey and gloomy.” But really, is sunny and warm too much to expect? ;)
That’s all for right now. See you soon.
