Knowing what is going to happen next can be really boring. I was sick once and stuck in bed. I laid there all night and finally fell asleep right as the news was ending. The blankets were too hot and woke me back up a few hours later right as the news was being repeated. I couldn’t find the remote and didn’t have the strength to get up. I suffered through all of the same stories that I had just watched. I tried to amuse myself by looking at things happening in the backgrounds of the shots. It didn’t really help.
