It’s 9:45 pm right now.

I’m getting to bed by 10 pm.

You don’t think I can do it, do you?

My body says otherwise.

My joints have a dull ache.

Slightly drippy nose.

Something is piercing my right temple from the inside.

Throb. Throb.

My throat is a bit scratchy.

Mind, surrender. Body has the advantage this time.

Mind, you know you could use the rest, too.

I’m gonna meet my goal.

Good night, y’all.
