Then why are you driving with no sleep? Driving sleepy is the same as driving after drinking...


Well all I can say is , a bad excuse is better then no excuse at all ... one can only hope her new born wasn't in the car at the time

When my kid was born we had a lot of well-wishers stopping by. I fell asleep standing up leaning on a wall, they did not even get the hint. It is tiring, not just the lack of sleep but the entire ordeal, darn kids always want to pop out at night!

As for tired, last night on the Ohio Turnpike was interesting, all holiday travelers, all over the place and one guy doing anywhere between 63 and 85. I called on him, he was going to fall completely asleep and wipe out a few people. I hope they pulled him and had someone else drive, long way back to Texas, hope they made it!
