Good morning! It’s 4am and I can’t get back to sleep.
Just had a thought – you know all those old narratives about heroic quests or battles, where some sentry falls asleep and then some other guy wakes up and manages to spot the enemy sneaking up just in the nick of time? Ever wondered why in those stories it’s always an older guy who wakes up and raises the alarm?
I used to think it was just a veterans vs newbies trope, but now I’m wondering…I present to you the embiggened middle aged prostate, unsung hero of countless battles.
