We’ve been tired. Busy, yes, but mostly tired.
We blame allergy season and the drought-exacerbated dusty air for our lack of ability to sleep deeply.
That’s why we went to bed at 9 pm the other night. An early turn-in and a slightly later rise left us feeling much closer to human. Not 100%, but better.
Still, I was surprised when I had this conversation with a coworker later that day:
Coworker: Are you going to the XYZ luncheon today?
Me: Not that I know of, why?
Coworker: I just wondered. You’re all dressed up today like you’re going out.
Me: I’m going to ABC’s networking event tonight, but I’ve worn this to the office lots of times.
Coworker: Ah, that explains it. I mean, you’re wearing make-up and all that stuff.
Me: I always wear make-up!
The moral to this story: Tired makes you look less presentable than you might imagine.
