Work is hard. Even going to work wearing bio-hazard suits and flower pots on your head can make you too tired to have any fun. Is it quitting time yet and is the canary dead?

The original version of today’s shadow was written and produced by Allen Toussaint and sung by an auto repair body and fender man who at the end of his workday probably moaned, Lord, I’m so tired. How long can this go on?

The 5 O’Clock Shadow is presented by Flying Dog Brewery.
