Dear Fellow Dull Men,
I have a new activity that can be practiced by dull men–watching frost thaw.
This morning I was at a golf course where a sharp freeze had covered the ground with frost. Because the dull men who run the course won’t let people play until the frost is gone — walking on the frost might kill the grass and that would be exciting — a bunch of dull men were standing around just staring at the first tee, watching the frost thaw.
As I see it, watching frost thaw is duller than
watching luggage carousels go round and round. After all, carousels move; frost doesn’t.
Incidentally, I was not one of the men out there watching frost thaw. I was in the coffee shop thinking dull thoughts.

An admirably dull activity for the dull man who likes the out of doors in the winter months. It could fit well with the dull activity of front porch sitting, but then participating in 2 dull activities at once could be dangerous.
