Boring, a nice place to visit.
Monday April 2, 2012
I was a Southern Baptist Missionary in Khabarovsk Russia from late 1992 to late 1994. I have been thinking about that chapter in my life more frequently recently, as a dear Russian friend of mine is in the states with his wife and I will see him for the first time in nearly 2 decades tomorrow.
Being a missionary, I spent time with other American missionaries when I was in a Russia. Some of them were from an organization that was headquartered near Portland, Oregon. The actual name of the town was boring. No, not as I wasn't interested in the name. The town's name was Boring.
I had a lot of fun with that nugget. I would talk about going into the Boring office. Maybe settling down there some day and meeting a Boring girl and making her my Boring wife having some Boring kids and sending them to the boring schools. Interestingly enough, I never got bored with the joke.
A few weeks ago I was watching the T.V. show, Homicide: Life on the Street. In the show Alec Baldwin's brother Daniel plays a Detective who is partnered with a female detective played by Academy Award Winning (The Fighter) actress, Melissa Leo.
In one episode Baldwin's character is telling Leo's that his wife is from Boring, Maryland. He then goes into the same kind of Boring jokes that I used to engage in.
