I often hear people use boring instead of bored. One workshop participant was blatantly honest with me when she said 'My boss made me come here but I didn't want to attend because I think I'm going to be very boring'.
Hmmm... I think she meant she thought she was going to be very bored.
She could only be bored if I was boring!
The lecture is boring so I am bored.
Mommy... I'm bored...
