You just finished staying up the entire night having an argument with your wife about which of the two of you is more tired.
“You can’t possibly think you’ve done more this week than I have,” you said at approximately 3:14 AM EST.
“Your job isn’t a real job, though, so how could it make you tired?” asked your wife at 4:38 AM EST.
And it went on like that.
It had begun hours earlier, at 11:12 PM EST, when your wife got into bed and said, “I’m so tired.”
“Oh, you’re tired?” you said. “No, no. I’m tired.”
“What is that supposed to mean?” she asked.
And thus, it had begun.
And now, at 6:12 AM EST, you both face the day, exhausted, bitter and sure to rehash the argument tonight, when you’re both even more tired than you are right now.
