There is nothing that makes a person more exhausted then being around little people.  Yes you guessed correctly, I had a prolonged visit from the Poop Brigade.  They go and go, and go, and go, all the lib long day.  Which really isn't the issue at all.  I recall being exactly like that when I was a kid, in fact, I had a kid that was exactly like that.  No the issue is that they go all day but they are at that stage where they spend every waking moment trying to figure out how to kill themselves, or at the very least do serious bodily injury to themselves.  That is what I find to be exhausting, the whole having to be on guard all day long.  I may have mentioned that years ago I used to watch David Letterman, he used to have people on a segment called "Stupid Human Tricks" one of them was Velcro Man, this guy used to have a wall made out of one side of velcro, and a suit made from the other side.  He then used to jump on a small minitramp and stick himself to the wall.  That is what you need when you have tiny people around.  That way when you have to do something you can just stick them to the wall for awhile and know that they won't be able to self-harm. 

So the following is an ongoing discussion between me and the hubby for the last couple of weeks. 

Hubby: My arm still hurts. 

Me: You should rest it. 

Hubby: I've been resting it forever and it still hurts. 

Me: It hasn't been forever, its only been the last couple of weeks and you keep using it and reinjuring it. 

Hubby: I'm pretty sure its been three months since I hurt it.  And I haven't done anything with it since then I've been resting it all the time. 

Me: What about all the insulation you've been adding to the Wookie Cave?

Hubby:  Well obviously that doesn't count because it isn't work. 

Me: Hmmm.

Hubby: I'm bored.  The weather is just perfect to cut down some trees.  If I cut down trees that wouldn't be using it would it? 

Me: Actually that would be the opposite of not using it. 

Hubby:  You don't know that for sure. 

Me: Um?
