Tripping Up Meaning In The Street

I was at work, ‘patients’ were listening to our conversation.

‘Im very bored’ says my colleague. ‘How are you boring yourself’? I asked.

‘Im not boring myself’, ‘it’s working here that’s boring me’.

‘Have you ever tripped up a lump of ‘boring’ in the street’?
He looked at me for a moment, before acknowledging that he hadn’t, why hadn’t he, I pressed?

Because there is no boring out there it’s in there, he is creating the experience he callers boring through his thoughts from the inside out.

To underline the point, I explained that we were both at work, doing similar things, he was living inside an internal conversation about how boring he was feeling and I was just enjoying the company.
