nap excuses

Jet lag is a great excuse to take naps.

You can take a long ass nap (yesterday's was 2 1/2 hours), be late for work, be late to met your friends, and if they comment on your lateness, you just say, tiredly, "Jet lag." And they nod sagely with understanding (all of us expats having been there many times) and you are off the hook.

Of course, this only works for three days, max, before you have to start being on time again. Because, as expats, all your friends also know how long jet lag lasts.

Luckily, now it's the weekend, so I can continue to nap without guilt. If anyone comments, I can just say "Weekend". And they will once again nod sagely and with understanding.
