On dreaming wakefulness

This incident falls into that category of “does this only happen to me?” I will wake up when the alarm goes off. After turning the alarm off, I unknowingly fall back to sleep. The insidious part is that I go into a dream where I am awake and getting ready for work. In my dream world, I am going through my usual morning routine. In the real world, I am still snoring on my pillow. This can go on for some time, until my wife shakes my shoulder and tells me that I am going to be late if I “don’t get moving”. In my dream world, it is as if someone appears out of thin air and grabs my arm. In the real world, I am startled awake and jump about a foot off the bed with my heart racing. Then I have to spend several groggy minutes sitting on the edge of the bed trying to figure where I am and why I am not already dressed. Of course, it is possible that I am only dreaming that I am sitting on the edge of the bed trying to figure out where I am…

Happily, my bladder is not fooled and remains in the "real world".

Such a thin line between dreaming and being awake. There are those who say we are only truly alive when we are dreaming...
