T-man and I are the worst of the ping pong yawners. Or the best, I guess, depending on how you look at it.

I tend to look at it like hey, I’m driving a car, yawning widely as we roll on down the road at 45mph (or worse, 65) isn’t exactly great. I guess it’s better than sneezing where my eyes snap closed for a millisecond, scaring the bejesus out of me since I’m pretty sure “gee, officer, I know I careened wildly into that car but it’s biology, I was sneezing!” doesn’t fly as far as defenses go.

But nevertheless.

We’re champions at the after school yawns. It’s mid-afternoon so I’m already primed for nap time, and T-man’s zapped from a day of, well, school. Thinking’s hard work, y’all. So there we are, heading home, him nodding off in the passenger seat while I pinch myself to keep the yawns at bay.

I should probably embrace the mid-afternoon coffee, huh?
