Reasons I Hate Jet Lag

Yes, I promised that I would begin posting today about the great Greece adventure, and yes I know posts normally pop up by 7 AM, but I’m not feelin’ it, and here’s why…

  1. For most people, jet lag makes them tired.  It makes me tired…and mean.
  2. Very mean.  As in, nobody-likes-to-be-around-me-mean.
  3. So mean that my wife called me out on it.  Which she should have.  
  4. Which stinks because she was on the same trip and she’s tired too.  
  5. But tired and nice, not tired and mean.
  6. So mean that I asked a couple of co-workers to pray for me today.
  7. And then wanted to critique their prayers.
  8. Because I’m mean.

I wonder if you could zap me ahead by seven hours (which is the time zone my body just got used to) if I would be less mean?  Perhaps it’s my body detoxing from the two-per-day Magic Bars I ate (it’s a Greek thing…you wouldn’t understand).

But for now, I am undeniably, unequivocally mean.  So I shall spare you any further snarkiness, and promise to post some (nice) Greece news…beginning tomorrow.

    I understand your mean because of jet lag. Been there before. However, you need to let us know who won the contest of worst job ever.

      Patience, Blake. Patience. Because of my unforeseen London & Boston delays and the ensuing “missing o’ the preaching gig,” the purpose behind the contest was skewed. However, there will still be a winner…announced Monday.

    Please go to sleep 🙂

    big ‘ol meanie. Greece, how many hours difference is it? I know it’s not 12 hrs different – which is completely upside down… That’s what SE Asia is…
    I’m just glad I wasn’t in the office today. I wouldn’t want my high opinion of you lowered. haha.

    So you have found the equal to Magnum bars in Greece huh? Nice….that could have something to do with it.

    • Danny says:

      …and dude, they’re AWESOME. They have a new one out called “Magic Sandwich” – half ice cream bar, half ice cream sandwich. It’s heaven in a wrapper.

    Ummmm…is there any way I can NOT come in ANY sort of contact with you today? Oh, and don’t eat my cake…even if you are tired-mean, I’d make your work life a lot, lot more difficult…and for much longer than just a day or two. This is not a threat.
