I thought it was a joke and went to bed early, tired from something or other.
So I woke up utterly confused on Sunday, with two clocks telling me different things. I was tired anyway, so I turned off the alarm and rolled over. As you might expect, I woke up promptly at the crack of 1pm (or noon?) and felt a bit out of phase with the world for the remainder of the day.
Today, struggling to stay awake, I called the eye doctor to find out if my new sunglasses are ever going to show up. I'd been without them for a few weeks, after losing my previous pair and having to undergo an exam to get a new prescription. (It's okay. I was due for one.)
"Oh, your glasses are here!"
"Uhm, when were you planning to call me?"
The new glasses fit quite nicely and the prescription is only slightly different from the one I had before. Of course it's different enough that the world appears to be just a bit odd in a way that's hard to put my finger on.
And that gives me a slight headache.
