I'm very tired I . . .
When I was in elementary school, my sister-in-law Darlene (Doll) took some of us little ones along to visit her parents in St. George. I’m not sure why Doll agreed to take us along, but it was my first trip away from all the family and I was super excited to send them all postcards. Apparently I ended one postcard with “I’m very tired I” My guess is that I wasn’t really so tired that I just drifted into oblivion after “I,” my guess is that I intended to write why I was so tired and got side tracked. Still, my family found this greatly amusing and ever since it has not been uncommon for family letters and emails to end with, “I’m very tired I . . . .” The interesting thing is: not much has changed over the last 20 to 25 years. I have always been, as I am at this moment, and likely will remain for the foreseeable future, very tired I . . . .
