Michael, my hubby, has been working overnights. He hasn't gotten a good sleep in weeks. This morning during breakfast Brittany was reading a book to us. Michael was done with eating and raised his hand to ask to leave the table. Instead of asking to be excused, though, he said, "May I please be exhausted?"
It took him a minute to realize what he had said, esp with all of us laughing!
I told him I didn't think he needed our permission. :-)
