Blinded by The Light

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?

Hahahahah! Yep you got that right. I had one this morning nice red head and my dog Sugger starting scratching me to let her out! :-)

Sally said...

You had me worried there for a minute! Other-worldy experiences? Huh, I live in A-nother world!! :)

My Asleep Brain and Kinda Awake Brain have arguments all the damned time, usually in the middle of a righteous nookie dream, or something. Man, that ticks me off.

I haven't had a chance to hear my half asleep brain for a while now. I think it's been ever since Squirt came along!

Life and reality have ways of spoiling a good dream. ec

I love my dreams. I think I remember more than most folks. And, yes, I hate being awakened from them because they are much more interesting and exciting than real life. Well, most of the time.

I love my dreams as well and I dream often. I often wake to the sunrise in my eyes. I have learned to roll over but sometimes I have an experience similar to yours...then I make a cup of hot tea.

Thanks for sharing!
