Overheard in the Hall – Sleep and Fatness

Person #1: I’m so tired of working so hard on this contract. There just aren’t enough hours in the day.

Person #2: I know. I finally just bit the bullet and stayed up all night one night to finish everything.

Person #1: Oh, I can’t do that. I’ve never been able to do that. People say they could do it when they were young, but couldn’t when they got older. I could never do it even when I was young.

Person #2: Oh, well, I can still do it sometimes, but I can’t fully recover.

Person #1: You know they’ve found studies where lack of sleep contributes to weight gain? (Looking at the tight pants of Person #2 with the belly and hips sticking out)

Person #2: Ha. (Fake) Yes, I’ve heard that too. Ah well, we do what we can do.

Person #2: Ok, well, good luck with that.

Person #1: I’ll go get something done.

Everyone walks away.
