I’m so tired.
I’m tired!

I feel like I use these phrases a lot. We also use the phrase ‘sick and tired’. It means to be angry, to be really annoyed. “I’m sick and tired of you always being late.” Sick ‘n tired.

Notice that you might want to reduce the word ‘and’ to just the N sound – sick ‘n, sick ‘n, sick ‘n tired.Tired is a one-syllable word that feels like a two-syllable word. That’s because of the schwa-R sound. Tired, DA-da. Just make sure you have this round shape in the voice, a curve up, but then an even bigger curve down.

We want all of the sounds to fall into that shape so the character, the feeling of the word is American. Tired. Tired.
