There's no excuse for boredom in the Electronic Age. Even if funds are limited, you've got entertainment options on every side: TV, movies, picnics, conversation, sightseeing -- and the list goes on. The best cure for boredom is simply to start doing something.
Conversation may not be a lost art, but it's one form of entertainment that most people seem to have lost touch with. A good, long talk about anything from books to boys can keep you entertained for hours, especially if it takes place over food and drink.
