Numb

At the risk of being seen as extremely random, I would like to share a thought that popped into my head late last night. Or maybe it was early this morning. Regardless of when it was that this thought swirled through my mind, I need to share it. I am interested to see if this is a universal experience, or just some quirky thing that only happens to me. Right now, before he has even heard what it is, Kane is saying, “It only happens to you, Brad!”

 I was remembering that at various times in my life, I have been awakened by my alarm, only to find that I have been sleeping on top of my arms, and that the use of them is temporarily discontinued. If you’ve ever experienced this, you may agree that it is quite a humorous condition to be in. You’d like to turn off the alarm, and keep sleeping a bit more, but the appendages that are usually used to press the snooze button are incapacitated! An interesting struggle usually ensues. For about 20 seconds, you’re flopping your arms in the general direction of the alarm. At about the end of the said 20 seconds, you are regaining the control of your arms, and are no longer in the mood to snooze. The struggle has left you less dazed than you usually are at 5:30 am.

 This is all very intriguing! As I write this, I find myself wishing that I could have this whole episode on video.

 I sincerely hope that I am not the only one who has experienced this!
