Blitz Q# 183: Have you ever had a small thing happen that makes you question your sanity… for a few hours at least?

This one’s mine: Have you ever had one of those mornings where your alarm clock goes off, so you turn it off, lay there a minute, then start going about your morning routine. Then, after (what feels like) a few minutes to half an hour later, the alarm clock goes off FOR REAL?

And then you lay there a couple minutes, totally confused why you’re still in bed because you could’ve sworn that you were already up and moving around for the day, only to realize you dreamed that first wake-up call?

…Damn, I hate those mornings.

Anybody else have that happen, and did it totally throw off your morning because you kept coming back to that thought every once in a while, wondering how that happened and why it felt so real? Or have you had some other thing affect you about the same way?

Floor’s yours…

      George Carlin’s standup segment on “our similarities” is always a helluva perk me up (and that’s a big one). I love watching first Carlin watchers’ reactions and they’re going through the list with him like ‘yeah, me too!” (Usually Gen Z folks). I’m gonna go watch before I do some re-measuring again (gotta get rid of the awful system above the washing machine next–I need more kitchen stuff out of the kitchen still [groan])

    When I was in my early 20s, I used to sometimes nap just a bit after work (I worked 2 jobs; one a parttime, so some days! You’re likely familiar with that.) A few times I awakened, saw the time, and got in gear to get to work, not realizing for a few minutes that it was evening, not morning. Interestingly, one time my co-worker told me she’d done that the evening before and drove all the way to work to see the empty lot. We bought a couple of donuts at break to celebrate!

      I like to refer to him as “The Great Philosopher Carlin” when I invoke his name in convo. People my age and older get it. The man had a steel trap mind and a finger on the pulse of our problems. What’s unfortunate is how relevant he still is today… we haven’t learned and changed enough.
