Tired!

You know a boy is tired when he comes in from work and ends up like this:

It was a hard work shift!

He likes to sleep in his chair, not in a bed.  This time, he landed upside down in the chair, and was so tired he stayed that way.

Training to be a manager can be exhausting, apparently.  They've moved him to night shift, in preparation for him going to school during the days in January.  Once he's in school and working, i figure i will find him like this more often.
