I didn't mean for this blog to turn into a blog about things that suck. If I had, I'd have named it Things That Suck, or Doesn't This Suck, or The Suck That Sucks. Something like that. But this morning, I'm sorry, the blog is about things that suck.
Try this on for size. Maybe you've been working too many hours. Maybe you've been getting up at really stupid hours and ultimately not getting enough sleep. Maybe last night you got home at a totally reasonable hour and instead of having to get to work at 4:00am (which sucks), you had to be at work really close to home at 6:00am, (which sucks much less).
So, you went to bed before 11:30 p.m. and set your alarm for 4:30am, allowing yourself a generous 5 hours of sleep. And when your alarm went off, you didn't even look at the clock. You just obediently got your ass out of bed, went into the kitchen and pressed the button to make the pot of coffee you had set up the night before. And not so many minutes later, you found yourself on the couch with a fresh cup of coffee and an episode of South Park on the tube.
And then, you checked out the computer to see if you'd missed anything important overnight. And the first thing you noticed was that it's only 2:30 am. And you have no reason whatsoever to be up so damned early. And the thought of going back to bed for two more hours just made you think of oversleeping and having a bunch of people pissed off at you in the near future.
We're talking the Theory of Relative Suck. Staying up when you got up too damned early sucks less than going back to bed and oversleeping. But it sucks nonetheless.
Yes it does.
Note: I promise to post non-sucky posts soon. Just as soon as any non-sucky events occur.
