A Silly Question: “Are you addicted to something?”

It has been a long day for me today. I was loaded with 21 students online. Most of them are kiddies and can’t imagine how I deal with them.lol I am sure some of you know that I do mylotting in between classes. The main reason is to feel alive and not to feel bored. While having a class with my online student, we are learning an adjective word “addicted.” It seems he can’t get the real meaning of it. A simple question does the trick: “Are you addicted to something?” He answered me with full confidence: “I am addicted to playing computer games.” At the back of my mind, I was thinking that he will reply in a more sensible way like “I am addicted to studying the English language.” The mere fact, “I am addicted to mylotting.” “How about you, guys?” “Do you feel the same addiction?” Image Credit: www.lung.org

I feel more addicted to reading than myLot. If I do not have a good novel to read, I panic.

I am the same wway about books. I need a good book, or I used to get worried But, I always have a good book on my Kindle at all times and go to the library all the time Though sometimes i get nervous thinking that perhaps I won't find a good one on my Kindle then what would I do!

I think it is healthier to drink water and be addicted to it.

Addiction can often be made light of...I am addicted to mylot or I am addicted to chocolate etc etc. When someone has been really addicted to something they wouldn't find it funny in any way.

I eat a lot. I love foods. That's my addiction. I tried to control it because I'm not getting any younger but it's not working. Good thing my body mass index is still good even if I eat a lot. A lot means my meal can feed a family of four.
