A Very Peculiar State of Mind
I think I’ve done this once before and it’s one of the most bizarre feelings you can ever have.
I’d planned to work a while extra tonight, but developed one of the worst headaches I’ve had in a few years. I was home by about 6pm, tossed my clothes, and went straight to bed. I did not pass Go. I did not collect $200. My intent was to nap off the headache for an hour or two. This nearly always works for me.
It worked too well tonight.
The next thing I know, it’s 10:30pm and I’m waking up feeling like I got a very good night’s sleep—too good. Besides feeling a zillion times better than I did 5 hours ago, I thought it was 10:30am and I was horribly late for work.
I was about two seconds from diving through the shower and racing to work when I realized that, for one thing, I was hungry and, secondly, that it was dark outside. Amazingly enough, it took my brain longer to process that it was still dark than it did to figure out why I was hungry. I’m never hungry in the morning. I seldom eat breakfast (yeah, yeah, bad on me, I know) so the notion that I’d wake up very hungry was suspicious.
Thank goodness I had some leftover dinner from last night’s trip to The Cheesecake Factory. The only thing still open at this time of the night requires the use of a drive-through window, and I was told to wait 3-5 days before rolling down my windows to give time for the tinting to cure. Well, today is three days, and I fully intend to wait for five.
So now, I’m awake and wanting to do a few things, watch some recorded TV programs, and I’m not gonna be ready for bed again until after midnight, but need to get up at the usual time for work. I’m gonna be so screwed up tomorrow morning.
