Live and learn. The upside is that I got a lot of things listed, right? And somehow managed to function today on less that 5 hours sleep. I will sleep like a baby tonight, no lie. But bone-tired--where did that saying come from? Fact is, I found nothing online that helped me understand the origins of this term, and yet I feel like I have an up-close, personal relationship with it far too often.
So, if you are so tired you feel weary to the core of your being, how do you express that? There are lots of phrases I can think if: dog tired, beat, plumb tuckered out, beat to a pulp...
What do you say? The oh-so-tired but inquisitive mind wants to know.
