Nothing

By Mary L. Bushong
1     Joe leaned back in his chair and stretched his arms. He'd been playing with his new video game system all morning and for days previously. None of the games seemed interesting anymore. Nothing was interesting to him at the moment.
 
2     Mom came through the room a few minutes later with the broom, sweeping the floor. Mom looked at him just sitting there doing nothing.
 
3     "What are you doing?" she asked.
 
4     "Nothing," said Joe with a flat voice.
 
5     "What's the matter?" she asked.
 
6     "Nothing," said Joe, and the corners of his mouth began to curl upwards in the barest hint of a smile. This nothing discussion was amusing.
 
7     "Are you planning to do nothing all day?" asked Mom. "It sounds stimulating."
 
8     "Well, actually I just couldn't think of anything I really wanted to do," said Joe.
