I know… I know… Life’s not fair.
And to complain about something being unfair is to sound like a petulant child not getting his or her way.
But it’s really not fair to wake up in the morning with a headache. I mean, I haven’t done anything to deserve the headache. I’ve just been sleeping. I haven’t had a stressful day yet. I haven’t neglected to eat at an appropriate time. I haven’t even thought about going through caffeine withdrawals.
Waking up in the morning with a headache is like beginning the day at a disadvantage. It makes the sunlight seem brighter and too intense. It turns sound into a cacophony of noise that only serves to increase the pain. It makes conversation next to impossible simply because the ability to focus is all but lost.
But I suck it up… I have to deal with it… Because that’s what it means to be a responsible adult. Right?
