I'm wondering why the phrase is called bored stiff.
Why stiff of all words? Not like bored ppl very stiff also.
Boredom makes you restless lah.
But.. ahhhh.. stiff??
Oh, look at me, i'm bored, and i'm sitting like a statue: stiff.
Boredom does not have paralytic properties!
It agitates. It makes you want to do something.
It doesn't make you stiff.
yes i'm bored (but not stiff!)
