Another dream of being awake

February 1, 2010

I just woke up from an afternoon nap, necessitated by my ongoing headache. Near the end of the two hour nap I managed to fool myself again. I got up, went into the bathroom, and as I looked in the mirror I thought about how tired and groggy I felt. I was so tired I thought, "Man, I need to either wake up, or go back to bed."

As I thought about splashing some water on my face, I looked at my face in the mirror, and realized something was wrong ... some things about the face weren't quite right. That's when it hit me: Wait just a moment here, I'm not really awake! I'm still laying on my bean bag chair on the floor, and this is just a dream, an illusion, and the intense grogginess is from actually being asleep.

With that thought, I woke up on my bean bag chair. And yes, I double-checked.
