Spontanious post–exam intellectual implosion syndrome

Has anyone else felt this phenomenen? In the immediate aftermath of exams I find the cerebrum still functions at full capacity and one is able to discuss, well in my case, the ins and outs of the legal definition of public services in France with a course colleague. There then follows a period of lunacy in which one may spontaniously burst into laughter at one’s own thought, at which point the newsagent accepting the money one tenders for the paper surrepticously reaches for the phone all the while projecting a counterfeit smile in one's direction… Give it a few hours, however and one struggles to construct sentences. Then zombiism kicks in and one starts biting one’s housemate’s wrists to retrieve the blood. Or perhaps not… but what is certain my brain will soon return to what, in purely physical terms at least, it actually is – a massive jumble of coiled ganglia… or maybe if I keep it entertained with something intellectually demanding over the summer – like learning German – it’ll be less of a weight on my shoulders. [The brain nods in agreement].
