Anyway, while drowsiness wasn't a problem, pain was. I've never actually driven this particular car before long distance and it has sorta stiff leather seats. After a couple hours in, I started having to take extra pain meds to fend off Mr McStabby. It got pretty bad right after I stopped for gas and I ended up limping around, half bent over, much to the amusement of the locals I'm sure. To make myself feel better I bought myself an ice cream cone from the gas station convenience store. Maybe it was the ice cream and the BK breakfast sandwiches I ate earlier in the day but I didn't run into any dizziness either. All in all, it really could have been worse. If I just loot a pillow from one of these hotels for the drive home, everything might be spiffy.
I ended up getting into town a little after 5 and after making it to my rooom, collapsed on the bed and proceeded to do my imitation jello. I flopped onto the bed and have been watching tv/napping ever since. There are worse things in the world.
