Oh man, am I ever sleepy this morning. Some days are
just like this. How I wish I could have just stayed home in bed instead
of having to drag myself in to work. They just better stay out of my way
today if they value their heads.. That shower this morning didnít
wake me up a bit. Donít know how I made it to work - on automatic
pilot, I guess.
Just my luck to get to the office and run into one of
those cheerful early morning people who obviously go to bed at 7 p.m.
and bounce up at 5:00 in the morning, wide awake.
"GOOD MORNING!!! How are you this morning?"
Man, wouldnít I just love to smack them across the
mouth and tell them to shut up and let me sleep!
On a morning like this the coffee is never ready. Any
other morning the office pot drips coffee through in a matter of
minutes. This is one of those days when I hope no one is around so I can
take the pot away and put my cup under the drip to catch the first cup.
The coffee maker is running in slow motion. Iíve never seen it take so
long to fill up a cup.
As I take my black poison back to my cubical, I wonder
if I can sneak a nap during lunch. Oh me, I sure feel rough today. Those
dark circles under my eyes were not helped a bit by the makeup. Is it
impossible to hide a lack of sleep with make up? Of course, if I could
just keep my eyes open that might help.
Maybe today will be an easy day. Wish I could smile.
Heck, wish I could wake up! No, actually, wish I could go to sleep.
Maybe I can pretend to be reading and take a little nap. I can prop my
head up with my hand under my chin and rest my elbow on the desk. Drat,
every time I doze, my chin falls off and it wakes me up.
Wish I were dead. Wish I were home. Wish I were rich
and didnít have to work. Wish I had enough sense to go to bed at night
instead of staying up for one more e-mail, one more TV show, one more
excuse to put off sleeping at night when the rest of world is
Curses, it is no use! Iím going to have to quit
trying to sleep with one eye at the time and wake up. Whatever you do,
donít get between me and the coffeepot on a day like this! Did
somebody it switch it to decaf?
Never again am I staying up till 11:30 on a work
night! Iím going to bed early tonight and get some rest. I know I said
that yesterday, but this time I mean it. What day is it anyhow? Groan!
Only Wednesday? I just canít make it Ďtill the weekend.
Why am I a "night person" in a "day
person" world? Why does the day have to start so early in the
morning? If the day could start about noon, that would suit me just
fine. I would be ready for breakfast by then. The thought of food at 7
or 8 in the morning is sickening. Heck, at 10 p.m. when the rest of the
world is turning in, Iím getting my second wind, ready to shift into
second gear and start revising web pages.
Well, its 8 a.m. and the coffee is starting to hit my
blood veins now. I feel a little better. Maybe I can make it for a while
- at least until 2 or 3 this afternoon. Me? Crabby? Shut up and mind
your own business!
