Having just returned from vaca in laid-back Biddeford Pool, Maine, which also is a very pet-friendly place, I'm in need of a bit more relaxation. Took in a bit too much sun and am enervated as a result. Nothing that a good long sleep won't cure, followed, of course, by a good long slurp.
|Completely enervated by the heat in Portland, |
I crashed on Peaks Island, where the ocean
breeze was strong and cool.
What, not enlightened yet?
Let's look at the roots: exhausted from the Latin verb meaning to draw water out, or drain. Enervated, also from the Latin, meaning weakened at the sinews. Weary to the very bone.
In other words, dog-tired. Just like me. Until Thursday at 5, that is.
