I don’t get drunk, I get sleepy.

When I get tired, I become a completely different person.

This happened last night, and I’ve only just remembered, so I shall explain. When I get really sleepy, I begin to act like I am drunk, at least according to The Boy, who should know, having seen me in this state many times. I think essentially what happens is that my body stops moving at the same time as my brain.

I’ve always had a slight problem because I think in a different order than makes rational sense. I tend to write words out completely incorrectly if I don’t think carefully about what I am putting down, and I blend words together. In everyday life this is rarely a problem because I catch myself before I do it, or I stop speaking if I’m about to do it orally, though I sometimes find myself stuttering over the simplest things, even in English (why oh why am I doing a languages degree?)

After dark everything changes. Normally I am quite a night owl, but there comes a point when I crash, and after that, my brain seems to stop being able to control my body properly, and I come out with some ridiculousness. Allow me to demonstrate with the ending to my conversation with The Boy last night –

To clarify further, The Boy was able to talk out loud to me on Skype, but my microphone doesn’t work for him, so I have to type, which is why it seems to be only me talking. Also, I get excessive with my kisses when I am tired, because it’s just so easy to hold the X-button down for ages. Enjoy.
