Consciousness Is Just So Exhausting

While I grew up in California, I have lived in Washington for the past 35 years, so I’ve grown unaccustomed to the California heat. While visiting my sister and her family, I find that the constant heat is making me feel very tired.

I’m having a conversation with my adult niece, and the topic turns to travel and weather differences, and at one point I say, “Do you know what makes me tired?” Without missing a beat, and with a completely straight face, my niece replies, “Being awake.”

While that wasn’t at all how I was going to end that sentence, I had to concede that she had an excellent point.
