    I was bored stiff. = I was teribly bored.

    Dear teachers,

    Would you be kind enough to tell me whether there is a difference between the meaning of the following two sentences or they are interchangeable?

    I was bored stiff.

    I was terribly bored.

    Thank you for your efforts.

    Regards,

    V.

    No difference, but "bored stiff" is much more evocative.
