I had a very rough week at work so I wasn't going to write a newsletter this week because I was (am) dog-***-tired. It wasn't so much that I minded doing the newsletter but I was too tired to think of anything to write about. Then it hit me....what is dog-***-tired???
dog *** tired
Really, really tired. Especially after having completely expended yourself. Dead on your feet. So tired you just can't.
- very tired, exhausted
- extremely weary, totally drained.
Dog tired is an old English idiom usually hyphenated to dog-tired. An adjectival phrase meaning to be physically exhausted, it derives from an old tale of Alfred the Great who used to send his sons out with his widespread kennels of hunting dogs. Whichever of his sons, be it Athelbrod or Edwin, were able to catch more of the hounds would gain their father's right hand side at the dinner table that evening. These chases would leave them 'dog-tired' yet merry at their victory. The tradition was continued for a few generations but is not noted in literature after Bede's Ecclesiastical History of the English People.
Now, feel free to join me in a nap.
