    Not everybody can live the tired life, but you've mastered its intricacies.

    10. Your ideal night involves staying indoors, wearing slippers, and bourbon.

    Also maybe a cheeseburger and no pants.

    11. You're not great at the dating thing because you straight-up don't like most people.
