Stevie and I live in an apartment above a shop on the main street of our town. Above us is another apartment whose tenants have recently taken up refrigerator wrestling. Either that or they're teaching themselves how to juggle bowling balls. Or they're making an audition video for the theatrical show "Stomp."
In any case, over the past week, it has sounded like they may come crashing through our ceiling and land on our bed at any given moment.
All this to say I haven't been sleeping well and it's making me, oh, highly irritable. You would think going for a run might help, but I think tonight was the first time I've ever finished a run feeling worse than when I started. I ran five miles tonight and when I finished I only felt hungrier, colder, wetter and more tired.
I guess it's just that time of the year when the winter blues start draining me and I want nothing to do with anyone.
