Which sentence is correct?
A. I just finished dinner and now I am boring.
B. I just finished dinner and now I am bored.

Answer
Sentence B is correct.

Boring means that something is unexciting, uneventful. For example, "I didn't enjoy that movie. It was boring."
We used bored to describe how a person feels. For example, "I get so bored at work. I do the same thing every day."
