So if I fetch origin/master to my local origin/tired branch then I could rebase it. Work on the branch and when I'm done later in the day I can push to GitHub to origin/tired and make a PR to origin/master?

That’s correct!

I think the phrasing of this question could use some clarification.

A good general rule is not to rewrite history (any history) after it has been pushed to the shared repo.

Which means that when you are rebasing in your local repo, you’d only want to rebase your newer commits that haven’t been pushed yet.
