The other night I woke up and couldn't remember anything. It was just like when you arm goes to sleep and you have to just flop it around until it wakes up again, but it was my memory. I had no idea who I was, where I was or what to do. For the first few moments I just sat there, perplexed, but I gradually began to feel a little afraid. This was exacerbated by the fact that I slowly became aware (a strange phrase indeed) that I was not alone in the building, but that
there was someone upstairs.
In the course of another 60 seconds I remembered that I was downstairs, that I had fallen to sleep on the couch, and that it was my wife who was upstairs, asleep.
It was a rather uncomfortable experience.
I've done that too! A couple times, it seems to happen when you fall asleep ... Or rather, it happens when you
in places you don't usually wake up in or are unfamiliar to you. I think they're quite cool.
