This is a little embarrassing: two stories.
1. Last night I went to the D-Bar with some friends, drank two Negra Modelos, came home, setup my Aerobed, sat down to send a few quick emails, and…I fell asleep. Two beers and I was out. Out cold, asleep and on the couch. Wow…a few months in the Middle East and I come back as a total lightweight…well, I guess that will help save me some money next year.
2. Today I was asked to help out the Hebrew summer language team, as they have been continually beaten pretty bad by the Greek team here at Princeton. So I played. And it was 95 degrees and very very humid. Sometime towards the end of the game (which we lost, 10-12) I started to wheeze (full on asthmatic-style) and I was sweating profusely…disgustingly…yah. So I came home, showered and sat down to do some email again. All of a sudden, there was this weird little thing I kept seeing in my vision path – very odd. I tried to ignore it but couldn’t. Then I went upstairs to have dinner with friends and I had a horrendous headache….Yah. Dehydration/heat-exhaustion…whatever it is, I have it. So, now I’ve downed 3 glasses of water and 32oz of Gatorade…and I’m still going.
Gosh. What a lightweight…
