In 1980, I owned the Bob Seger album, "Against The Wind". One of my favorite songs from it was "The Horizontal Bop". At a naive 13, I had no idea what Bob was really wanting to do; I, as usual, just loved the music and sang along as if there were no consequences....
This brings us to July 23 and 24, 2005---The Horizontal Weekend.
And no, not for reasons that would bring smiles of ecstasy.....
And I slept.
I missed my five year old niece's birthday party at the fire station (yes, the fire station...)
And I slept.
I made it to church Sunday morning.
Then I sat dazed in the recliner for the rest of the day, missing a meeting.
I guess the last several weeks finally took their toll---one (sometimes two) people short at work, working 11-12 hours a day, church on Sunday, trying to find two minutes to remind the kids who I am, etc., etc., etc.
And let's not forget the OCD battle on a daily basis brought to you by "Lack-O-Serotonin"!!
And it's not like I fell asleep one time and woke up 28 hours later. No, we only sleep an hour-ish at a time. Overnights? If I get four hours in a row of sleep, it's breaking news on Fox.
So, I sorta staggered through today, and hope to find the other side tomorrow.
Blah blah, enough of me, blah blah.
TODAY'S ADVERTISING CLICHE FROM HELL:
"For More Information"
When you call your local florist, mechanic, printer, whoever....don't you want them to magically stick a tube through the phone, connect it to your ear, and then SUCK INFORMATION OUT OF YOUR BRAIN????
In closing.......it's hot. I hate heat. I hate humidity even more.
Forecast high for tomorrow: 104.
Forecast high for Wednesday: 103.
This ain't flippin' Phoenix!!
