Does it even exist in the dictionary ? In the French culture, bof means indifference, apathy, disdain. Example :
-"How was your day, honey ?"
Bof sums up the amount of un-happen-ness that can exist in one's life.
It expresses the boredom at one's life.
It's a short and sweet way of saying that you have nothing to say.
Today, is a bof day. It's 4:11 PM in Montreal and the place where I got the interview did not call me at all for the job. Today could have been the day where my jobless state ended. Instead, it's a bof day.
Sometimes I wonder about the exact necessity of working. I mean, deep down, I do my thing everyday. I use my legal knowledge to help my friends, my family, and even random strangers. I get involved in my community. I bake bread. I go out. I see my friends. So to be honest, the only reason I should get a job is to pay my bills. What do I say to this ?
P.S. The recruiting office of the Forces called today about a few details of my security check. I think they're trying to fast-track me. Now, that doesn't deserve a bof. More like a yeah !
