You know those disorienting moments between wakefulness and sleep when the line between dream and reality blurs and you can never quite tell what’s real and what’s not? I tend to have a lot of those, mostly because I’m a bit abusive and like hitting my Snooze button a couple of times before getting out of bed. This morning, as I waited for my alarm to go off one final time at 5:45, I found myself in that nebulous stage of half-awake, half-asleep. And suddenly I had a panic-inducing thought:
“MY ALARM’S GOING TO GO OFF IN ONE MINUTE AND I HAVE TO DICE THREE ONIONS BEFORE THAT HAPPENS!!!”
…yeah. That got me up and out of bed before I realized that, no, I had no pressing need for diced onions at 5:45 AM. Still, I feel like it’s indicative of something: food is always on my brain, even when I sleep!
Anyone else have a funny half-awake, half-asleep dream lately?

I don’t have one that I can remember but your story gave me a good laugh as I know this has happened to me before.
