I dreamed that my alarm went off and I could not get it to stop beeping. I pressed snooze, nothing. Picked it up & pressed snooze, nothing. Slid my finger on it to dismiss, nothing. Shook it, nothing. Asked it nicely, nothing. Begged it, nothing. Took the battery out, nothing. Took the phone apart, nothing.It. Would. Not. Stop. Beeping. O_O
Needless to say, that was the WORST dream EVER! Would you believe it’s also not the 1st time I’ve had that dream? #fail. Basically, my alarm was really going off but I was trying to turn it off in my dream…which apparently doesn’t work, even on a smartphone.
As an aside, I’ve been reading Sleep: It Does A Family Good by Dr. Archibald Hart and I can now speculate that I was in stage 5 REM sleep, and when my alarm went off I was not alert enough to truly wake up. It’s just a guess but interesting indeed and supported by the 7 hours and 20 minute duration of my sleep (just short of the 90 minute multiple for a full sleep cycle) & my mental fog all AM.
At any rate, enough boring sleep chat. Oh, I also dreamed that I made a noise while my mother was sleeping and she woke up and blamed my brother. Uh…
See you in my dreams,
