I just had an out of body experience that has occurred a few times in my past. As a rule I go to bed when I’m tired. Sometimes that can seem sort of early, which was the case today when I hit the sack at around 4:30 p.m. in the afternoon. I slept very soundly and comfortably with the white noise and cool breeze being provided by my new oscillating desktop fan.
When I awoke I saw the daylight shining through my window slats and thought how wonderful it was to sleep in late. I arose, let more light in my bedroom, and started my morning routine. As I left my bedroom I bumped into my landlord and wished him a cheerful “good morning”! He repled in kind as I closed my bathroom door for privacy, tinkled, and then gave myself my long lasting shot of insulin. I’m a type 2 diabetic that must take pills and insulin shots, once in the morning and a 2nd, fast acting insulin before each meal.
The only problem this morning came when I looked at my desk clock after getting out of my bathroom. It was after 8 in the morning you see. That’s highly unlikely! I looked closer at my computer screen and discovered it was 8:30 P.M.. I had laid down just 4 hours earlier. It wasn’t morning but instead, it was early evening. This is where the Twilight music starts playing in the background. I had lost a day somewhere or maybe I had inadvertently gained a day. It’s all a matter of perspective isn’t it? 🙂
