Gah… I’m so tired.
I have been feeling so unusually weary all day.
Like, have you ever felt so tired, so weary, so completely and entirely drained, that suddenly Coldplay songs start making sense?
When you try your best but you don’t succeed,
When you get what you want but not what you need,
When you feel so tired but you can’t sleep,
Stuck in reverse…
Yeah, that bad…
Not that it is any surprise; I did miss my lunch two consecutive days, after which I played basketball till I could barely walk, following which—ironically enough—I went for a walk.
Unusual circumstances yield unusual consequences. That should be no surprise. And these circumstances did teach me, or at least refresh into my memory, an interesting lesson.
You see, for situations like these, always keep something sweet at hand.
It could be some juice, or a bottle of soft drink. Perhaps a few slices of pineapple, or some cookies. Anything sweet and light, that may offer a jolt of energy that will help you survive till your next meal.
Sure, it is not the healthiest of ways to live. Sure, it will have repercussions in the long run.
But you know what, it is always better to live unhealthy than to die healthy.
And sometimes, there is nothing better to do than live to fight another day.
And if your limbs just do not have the strength to even manage that, well, to once again quote the second coming of the bard himself, I will try to fix you.
