Rosie - yes the BSO finally happened. Some miscommunication with the start time as between Tuesday and Friday it was shifted from 7.30 am arrival to noon and THEN I was last on the roster, so I wasnt down to theatre (OR) until almost 4pm. Its also a long weekend here and I suspect I was the last of it. Feeling ok this morning, a bit tired and air crampy as that CO2 makes its way around, but otherwise ok.
Could have beat the crap out of Other Half last night when he showed up to pick me up. I knew he had been at a nearby pub waiting for the call (some miscommunication post recovery about when I could leave) and he showed up so loopy I thought he was drunk. Got into a cab and made it home and was very upset at what I thought was his (very,very unusual) irresponsibility, then this morning I realized he hadnt been drunk, he'd been running on almost no sleep. He'd got about 3 hours sleep the night before to see me out the door, thinking he wouldn't go back to sleep because of pick up duty at midday, but then didn't take a nap or anything when I told him expected pickup wasn't until after 5. When he is that tired he zones out, doesn't remember, doesn't follow a line of thought, but when he's actually drunk (not often) he talks more and follows through lines of thought very vigorously, so there is a distinct difference. We were at the front door and he got distracted by some people walking down the street, didn't understand why we couldn't close the windows in the cab, and he was momentarily confused by the pay machine. So I guess the lack of sleep on top of the two pints he had (which I believe, hes a very good social drinker, texted he was spending his time enjoyably talking to a group of French people he'd met at the pub, and he didn't smell at all like a booze), compounded to... mental shut down.
He got up this morning when I fed the cats at 530 (after a solid 7 hours of sleep) completely coherent and his normal self with only a vague memory of last night and that was when I realized, having seen this more than a few times, that he'd been sleep deprived. We talked it over and figured it out/cleared the air, but it was so annoying on top of a really long day!
