I was cold and still sleepy after Zach left for school this morning so I snuggled down on the couch and drifted off to sounds of the Today Show. Suddenly this light appeared behind my eye lids.
My asleep brain: Whoa, is this THE light? It can't be The light, my feet are still cold.
My trying to wake up brain: Don't be so stupid, go back to sleep.
My asleep brain: But look, it keeps getting brighter and brighter. Something's going on here.
My trying to wake up brain: Well, if you don't believe me, open your eyes, but that's going to mess up this great nap we're taking.
My asleep brain: This is too cool, but it's getting so bright it's uncomfortable in here.
My trying to wake up brain must have given up the argument at this point because I opened my eyes to see the sun glaring through the kitchen blinds, directly into my eyes, as I lay there snoozing on the living room couch. I quickly shut them but the moment was gone and I got up from my warm spot and greeted the day. Again.
Doncha just hate it when you think you might be having an other-worldly experience and life wakes you up?
