It's nice to feel tired. Really! Not the routine BLAH kind of tired. I'm speaking of the feeling after accomplishing that was put off for far too long. YES, I DID IT!
I suspect that we are creatures of habit. There's a 12-step meeting I have attended every week for years now, and the regulars sit where they always sit. There's no "pecking order" seating, everyone just sits where they want to sit.
But it's a gentle habit; if a newcomer comes in early and sits in the old-timer's chair, there's no confrontation, the old guy just sits somewhere else.
