When I left the gym this evening, I was so exhausted that I felt like collapsing in the middle of the street with rain falling on me. The thought of walking to my car was almost too much to bear. Between the workout and the day I had at work, I was pooped. I’m sure the cloudy, rainy weather didn’t help the situation much, either.
The workday was so tiring because I had to keep fielding the same question over and over – “Did someone punch you?!” No joke, I must have answered that question a good eight times today. Most of the time I played it off as a joke (“Ha, yeah, things get a little squirrelly over here!”), but at one point, my boss’s boss pulled me into his office and asked me if I was okay and asked what happened to me. Eye troubles are what happened to me, obviously, but it’s weird since it seems to look even worse now than it did two weeks ago. The same people that asked me if I was okay today are the same people who saw me when most of the left side of my face was swollen; now it’s just the corner of my eye. People must think I’m a legit hot mess.
So yeah, work and the gym were exhausting. So exhausting, in fact, that I couldn’t even be bothered to eat more than a quarter of a frozen wedding cookie for dessert. A few bites in, and the chewing was just too much work for me.
Sort of makes me wonder how I’m still awake now and it’s after 11:30 pm. Hmm…
