Your lesson this Monday is very practical indeed. I wish you all to take to heart this bit of advice that will help you avoid potentially painful conflict in the future. Put it into practice at once and you will find your path clearer and your way unobstructed.
By now you are doubtless wondering what wisdom this is that I wish to impart to you this Monday evening. What I suggest to you with all earnestness is this:
Please, do try to ensure that you are without a doubt fully awake before exiting your bedroom.
Unless you happen to be gifted with that amazing ability to avoid obvious wall, doorframes, furniture, and other obstacles which inflict bodily injury when collided with while in a half conscious state of mind.
I do not happen to be one of those people, and I have experienced the wisdom of this life lesson many a time on the wrong end.
Awake enough to get out of bed, open the door, and speak coherently does not equate being awake enough to avoid the corner of the wall and hallway you are faced with upon exiting your room.
Thank you for listening. I have little hope of applying this principle consistently, myself, but I hope you may recall it in times of drowsiness and save yourself from the consequences.
P.S. To those of you who, like me, think you are awake enough to function only to find yourself incorrect in that assumption, do not despair. There is hope. Usually the impact of hitting a large unmoving object (or stepping on a small, sharp object), is enough to call the mind into complete wakefulness.
