Recently my husband asked me if something I had done was fun (I think it was knitting).
My response? "I enjoy knitting, but I'm not sure if I'd call it fun."
This prompted us to have a discussion on what the definition of fun truly was, and when the last time we'd done something fun had been.
When fun came to mind, we both pictured laughing, hanging out with friends/family. This seemed to be our standard definition of fun. There was almost a sense of frivality associated with fun.
But, we decided, we needed to come up with a new definition of fun.
Is writing fun? I love doing it. So does this make it fun?
Is knitting fun? It's relaxing. Does this make it fun?
Is going to the movies fun? No one is talking? We're all just in the dark watching the big screen. Is this fun?
What are your thoughts?
