I have been told by those who may have reason to know that I am annoying in the morning. Now, esteemed readers, as you well know I am not given to unnecessary acrimony. Otherwise I might point out that clearheadedness, the ability to enunciate and to navigate between rooms without bumping into walls are not usually seen as instances of annoying behaviour— except by those given to imitating three-toed sloths in the morning. Indeed, if I were of an argumentative nature, I might point out that grumpiness, blank stares and a total inability to do anything (particularly when this nondoing is done in a blue terry towelling dressing gown) is truly annoying.
