It’s lunch break now and I’m nodding off. I got up at 4:30 am to go workout with the dragon boat team and so I’m bushed. I can barely keep my eyes open. I wish I could take a catnap now, but it’s almost time to go back to work.
I’ll get another cup of Joe and try to power through the afternoon.

Vocabulary:
nod off: fall asleep, usually when reading, watching TV or in class, especially with boring teachers

Be bushed: be very tired or exhausted

barely keep (one’s) eyes open: just manage to stay away

catnap: a quick nap

Joe: slang for coffee

power through: use willpower to get through something difficult

    Thanks always Dave. Usually it’s very helpful for me learning how to make sentences.
