So intersting that you posted this. I was labeled a "space cadet" in elementary school. I too daydreamed as if it was an Olympic sport.
I wasn't capable of your professional level though.
I want to tell y'all what happened to me early yesterday morning. I woke up not knowing what time it was. The weather Channel was on as usual because
it's great background noise while sleeping. I noticed that they were talking about the cold temperatures (yawn) and mentioned that in about 5 minutes
the freeze warning would expire in south Louisiana. I remembere that I got the usual text alert about the warning and that it would end at 9 A.M. So
it must be nearly 9 right?
Here is where it gets strange.
As I was stretching in bed getting ready for the 30 minute period of me walking like a drunk robot waiting for my decrepit joints to remember how to
work I noticed something odd.
In the corner of the screen was a box with a timer that was counting down the minutes till the freeze warning ended. I had never seen them do that
before but the weather channel adds more bells and whistles and is starting to look like Bloomberg tv.
Mind you, I was fully awake. I looked to the window and the blinds were closed but I could see a faint glow.
I get up, walk into the kitchen and glanced at the clock which read 3:35. In the morning. I did a WTF.
I have a history of waking up still in a dream, but it feels extremely strange, and I always know that I'm still creeping out of that dream state.
This was different. I was AWAKE. It dawned on me that it was Saturday and the weather channel host was Al Roker. I watch it enough to know Roker is
only on during the week, and that he at NBC by "9 am".
I snatched a coke and went back to the bedroom the weather channel was still on, but the countdown box was gone and so was Roker.
It was surreal. I'm not sure what lucid dreaming is, but it could have been that.
I've read some threads where people theorize that deja vu could be a glimpse into a parallel universe. It could have been that too.
What ever it was it stuck with me all day and didn't fade away as all of my dreams do.
Sorry if I rambled a bit and this is probably a crappy post, but it did help me sort some things out by writing it down and know that I'll get some
good ideas from everyone.
My wife thinks I'm an idiot, but she found this crackpot story fairly interesting.
Thanks for posting DG.
