It’s only been 3 days but it feels like a whole lot more. I am definitely getting way too old for this shit. I’ve just completed 3 days of a graveyard shift – that’s 12:30 am to 9:30 am shift – at the office and I am so tired that I don’t think I have enough energy to pass gas! Yes, I am that tired.

It was from Thursday post midnight to this morning but I swear it feels like it has been 3 weeks instead of 3 days. My body just doesn’t recover from those kind of timings that well anymore. I am 39 not 29! This was because we had a scheduling conflict and a shortage of training rooms at the office and hence my usual 4:30 pm to 1:30 am sessions were moved to the dreadful overnight slot and I have discovered new creaks and ailments on my body. I have heard so many complaints from the trainees as well that I am like “shut up, already”!


Thursday after the shift my cousin and I went to get coffee at Cafe Coffee Day and then hung out for a while before getting a pizza at Pizza Hut. Today post shift I went to buy a new pair of black shoes and went to McDonald’s for a chicken wrap and a coke before coming back home at 11:20 am. Yes I had a very early lunch. By 1 pm I went to sleep and only woke up at 7:30 pm. Ugh, I hate this shift timings!
