Jet lag is like having a friend drop off
their huge orange cat at your house and it’s
gorgeous so you are lulled into a false
sense of wellbeing but then you start to
notice that the cat is grumpier than
your grandfather and it howls at the door,
scratches you, and hisses whenever you
enter a room and you’re not sure when your
friend will be back and you cannot reach her
but you love her too much to let the cat
outside, you know, like accidentally.
You are stuck with that cat.
