I’m tired this morning so if you see me in town and catch me mid-yawn you’ll know why. I’m not bored. I’m not trying to get extra oxygen. I’m simply tired.

I’d like to take a nap but today is one of those days when I’m on the run. Today is a day when I wish I lived in town or at least had an office with a couch so I could relax a bit. It’s a five appointment sort of day (appointments for me and for my daughter) that started at 7:15 here in Northfield and then goes to New Prague and back to Northfield all by 5:00. Somewhere between all of this running I need to eat lunch and work one of my jobs for an hour or so. Ideally, I will get some exercise this evening (a bike ride would be good). At some point, I need to mow the lawn. That might not happen today.

So I will drink coffee and I will yawn.

Have you heard that yawning is contagious? And that seeing even a picture of someone yawning, or reading the word YAWN, will make you yawn? Are you yawning right now?

Here’s a link to an interesting article – Why is Yawning So Contagious?

And here’s The Yawn-O-Meter (How Long Can You Last?) from AsapSCIENCE.
