I'm getting that same premonition of my boredom being turned upside-down!


I can see 'my boredom being turned upside-down' as a beneficial influence.

Could I use "premonition" in a good sense?


Cobuild: If you have a premonition, you have a feeling that something is going to happen, often something unpleasant

Oxford: a feeling that something is going to happen, especially something unpleasant

Longman: a strange feeling that something, especially something bad, is going to happen

Macmillan: a strong feeling that something is going to happen, especially something bad

Cambridge: a feeling that something, especially something unpleasant, is going to happen

I wouldn't. The "mon" part is the same as the one in "admonish", Latin for warning. A premonition is an advance warning, and that connotation adheres.
