For some boredom is a skill that must be learned. Like good lovemaking, these people must learn to hold off: not to go skittering away soon as the buzz of stimulation-distraction is withdrawn and boredom's languid carress touches the mind. That premature 'I'm bored' is a joykiller. Better to let it build, slowly; to let boredom build its hours-long, days-long, slow crescendo, towards that exquisite boregasm.
