Yes, it's my Tuesday -- and the work day starts at 0300. As in a.m. And I've got a migraine and my temperature is spiking.
Have I mentioned we're two techs short? Yep. Both out for (unrelated) medical, ETA unknown. At this point, nobody else can be sick, even if they are. I gulped some aspirin/acetaminophen combo a little while ago and I'm just waiting for it to kick in.
Tam returned from gun school late Sunday, as red as a beet or perhaps a well-cooked lobster, and promptly fell asleep on the sofa fully-clothed, hat and shoes included. I tried a few times (when awake; I was mostly off in my room chasing Zs, but I never manage much at a stretch on this shift) to get her to consider making a little more allowance for comfortable, though less combat-ready, sleep. Nothing doing; she would kind of float to consciousness and I could see her decide it wasn't urgent without ever quite waking. I pity her alarm clock.
