You know those days when everything is a struggle?
I am having one of those days today.
I am ‘tuckered out’, as some would say. Shattered, as my parents would say. Burned out, done for, overtaxed, drained, fatigued and prostrated – as the thesaurus would say.
I had a lunchtime nap in my car, and woke up 20 minutes later than I ought to have, feeling groggy and jittery. I stumbled back into the office where the overpowering smell of onions smacked me in the face. Somebody was having an aromatic lunch. One that reeked, pungent and odoriferous, and added another irritated hindrance to the aching pulse in my head.
My head is now pounding, and there is a dull ache in my neck.
And my focus has been awful all through this long and toiling afternoon.
They say naps help when you’re tired! Well, mine certainly did not. It made me feel horrible!
What on earth has possessed me today?
A tired demon?
Well, begone, tired demon. I have work to do.
