View Full Version : A little OT, but just wondering...

First, before I start I need to say that I can fall asleep in a nano-second. I have
been known to fall asleep at night in mid-conversation. My head hits the pillow --
I am o.u.t.

When comfy on the coach with a so-so TV show on, it doesn't take much for me
to drift off. Then suddenly, a tennis ball is coming straight for my face, and I
awake with a jerking motion! I have also been known to wake myself up with
an arm jerk -- in my sleep I was serving. My husband has felt the aftermath of
that one, haha!

Anyone else do this, or am I hopeless?

When you get into that weird half-dreamy state (usually happens to me when my parents force me into church) that's usually how people wake up. They imagine something coming at them and flinch.

It's really uncomfortable.
