#201: Up? Right.......

Why, when we come home after a protracted journey (as I did at 5:30 this morning) do we say "I've been up for 36 hours!"

Up? Who are we kidding?

I am so not "up".  I am so far from up in my present blotto-state that I am hardly able to remain upright.

But as a retired person,  it doesn't really matter.  If I can hardly recall my own name, or if I have to sit down  to rest after folding the clean socks, who cares?  I am free to indulge my jet lag for as long as I want.  I can abandon that laundry, or check email tomorrow and no one will report me to the sleep police.

Besides, I've already made it to 9'oclock.

I'm outta here.   YAWN.....
