Tired people are stupid people. This is a home truth I have learned through long and bitter experience. Tired people are more accident-prone, they say dumb things, they get in arguments, they miss details. I try to schedule some time off following the heavy times, but I still get trapped into trying to play tired.
So Sunday evening, I whacked a light pole. Last night, I whacked a friend (so to speak), trying to be humorous and encouraging in his time of pain; the attempt was so bad that I woke up at 4:00 a.m. and thought, Egad! What have I said?! So, apologies have been sent, and I'll have to deal with the aftermath of that bit of dumbth even as I deal with the aftermath of hitting the light pole.
I'd like to lock myself up in a rubber room until I stop bouncing, but there's still stuff to be done, so I gotta get a few things accomplished. There are sick people in the hospital, worship services to plan, errands to be run.
No rest for the weary.
