sluggish? comatose? dopey?
why am I driving?
If there was a breathalyzer for measuring the level of sleep in my bloodstream and if there was a legal limit to how much sleep could be measured in my bloodstream I would be in trouble.
I come out of weekend of sleeping until 7AM or 8AM somewhat refreshed and recharged.
By Thursday morning, after 4 days of getting up at 5:15AM, my brain is so clogged with sleep it hurts.
All the little tricks, cooler to colder water in the shower, bottomless cup of coffee and not sitting after I get downstairs, I still back the car out of the garage in a mild daze.
Or a mild haze.
Or a hazy daze.
Am I fuddled?
Or am I befuddled?
Both at the same time.
Unable to think clearly, confused or stupefied?
The google says that fuddle is used to describe someone in this state due to drink.
I am not drunk.
Just near to being asleep.
Fighting off the forces from the land of Nod.
So what do I do?
Drive to work of course.
