You can look at the menu but you just canít eat
You can feel the cushions but you canít have a seat
You can dip your foot in the pool but you canít have a swim
You can feel the punishment but you canít commit the sin
Howard Jones, “No One Is To Blame”
Apparently, I didn’t get very good sleep last night.
You know when you drink tons of caffeine, smoke lots of cigarettes, or otherwise take a whole lot of stimulants, and your sleep suffers for it?
That’s how I feel, except that I didn’t take stimulants.
This makes me kind of angry in a couple ways. First is that I’m tired, which means that my work is going less slowly and I’m less friendly than I otherwise would be. Second, dag nabbit, is that if I’m going to wake up feeling this way, at the very least I want the benefit of having smoked the cigarettes, consumed the caffeine, and all that.
