It is not merely a Tired Tuesday. I was thinking Exhausted Tuesday, but that lacks the charm of alliteration. How about Terrifically Tired Tuesday? No, that implies something might be terrific (of course it might be and I just haven’t encountered it yet, let us not give up hope). Terribly Tired Tuesday? Hmmm, doesn’t move me. Let’s leave it for now and try to write the blog post.
Today was supposed to be the last oppressively hot day for a while. I have been melting away like the Wicked Witch of the West (there’s some alliteration, if you like that sort of thing) (which I do). And when I say “melting away,” I do not mean literally, because I am up several pounds. I realized today when I caught sight of myself in the mirror: I’m dumpy, frumpy and grumpy. Just to mix a little rhyming fun in with the alliteration.
So, yes, it has been a kind of a whiny, complaining sort of day. I told a co-worker I felt as if I was clawing my way of a completely vertical surface, with lots of sharp, spiky stones poking out of the mud and coming loose so that I really could not make any progress, although it was painful, sweaty and filthy. The funny thing was, as I went about my day, I had quite a few moments of feeling, “Hey, my job is all right. I’m glad I work here.”
This has got to be the dumbest blog post I’ve published yet (of course I’m going to publish it! Dumb or not, it’s all I got!) (hey, that rhymed! Cool). Did I mention I was tired? As always, I will try to do better tomorrow (it would be very unhandsome of anybody to bring up any ill-advised promises I may have made yesterday).
