Dog-tired after a long day

Today was… Well… You know when you suddenly realize you need to pee so bad you don’t think you’ll make it to the bathroom, then you wonder how could you not know you had to pee, and then you realize it was because you barely had time to consider the possibility? Yep, that was today. At some point during the day I sat down and had a few gulps of diet coke and realized my throat even hurt from drinking it. Yep, I was that thirsty that I had to drink it so fast it even hurt.

Anyhow… It was a great day, nonetheless. Right now I’m so tired I’m not even that hungry. I am, and I know it. Last time I ate was over seven hours ago, so of course I’m hungry by now. But I’m just so tired… I’m thinking of the possibilities and trying to decide which one will require less energy to prepare. That’s indeed very sad. Or funny. One or the other, I’m not sure, I’m too tired to decide anything right now.

Dog-tired. Yep, that seems about right.

Bob Hope once said “You never get tired unless you stop and take time for it.” Maybe that was my mistake, to sit down and allow myself feel tired. But gosh darn it, I am going to take time today to just feel tired. And you know what? I think sometimes it feels pretty good to feel tired after a long day of work.
