Mrs. Sickandtired: "Yeah, um, I didn't get any sleep last night, because my kids were both up sick, and now I'm exhausted and have a headache and shaky all over."
Dr. Grumpy: "What's your question?"
Mrs. Sickandtired: "Do you think it would help if I got some sleep tonight?"
My inner voice: "No! I think you should stay up all night tonight, too! Stay up for the next week! Make a big pot of coffee and guzzle it! See how long you can go without sleep, and see what it does to you! Suck it up!"
Dr. Grumpy: "Yes, I'd try to get some rest and see how you feel tomorrow."
Mrs. Sickandtired: "Okay, thank you."
