I Need My Goddamn Sleep

(Title from Chapter 9, Poor Planning on Your Part does Not Constitute an Emergency on My Part.)

I’m really tired this morning.

Why, you ask?

It’s because I stayed up until nearly 11:00 last night.

So even though I’m completely wiped this morning, ’twas all worth it for my 15 minutes hour and a half of fame with Dr. Anonymous. Thanks, Mike.

For some uncertain reason, he never got around to “wrapping me up” (don’t worry, DS; that’s not a euphemism; besides, no one can take your place!) the day after our delightful conversation. (Maybe he needed his goddamned sleep.) […]
