Q: After sleeping a mere three hours how tired might someone (me) be?
A: Exceeeeeedingly tired.
Q: Upon learning that one’s Mother has been rushed to the hospital (two hours away) and one is exceeeedingly tired, how well might a person pack a suitcase or two?

Yeah. I didn’t know either.
Really, really loud.
