Discombobulated

The other day, my son, Bubba, took a nap. When he woke up, the clock said it was 7:04. Since it was dark, he assumed he had slept all night and that it was 7:04 AM. He got up and proceeded to get ready to begin his day. My husband was also taking a nap, so it appeared that it was indeed morning, and everyone in the house was still sleeping.

Then I came home from work.

Bubba was eating a bowl of cereal, freshly showered. When he saw me, he looked completely confused. "What were you doing?"

"Working, like I always do."

"All night?"

"No. I'm home for the evening."

"Wait a minute," he said. "It's not morning?"

"No, dude. It's 7:35 PM."


Has that ever happened to you?

  1. How long was this nap? Apparently he was really rested after.

  2. I've gotten up thinking it was morning, but never got ready. That's funny.

    1. I don't think that's ever happened to me. Mostly because I don't nap.

  3. It didn't happen to me but it happened to my late husband many years ago. Had a good laugh at the time.

  4. Hi, Sherry!

    That's an amazing tale, but I can understand how it could happen. I am still jet lagged from the time change. I sometimes wake up "discombobulated" and not sure if it is day or night. I had to laugh when Bubba thought his mother had been out all night. I wonder what he thought you were doing. :)

    Enjoy the rest of your week, dear friend Sherry!

    1. Who knows what he thought I was doing. Probably figured I was up to no good!

      Enjoy your week as well.

    This only happens to me when I'm jet lagged from flying half way around the world. But Daylight Savings does funny things to me, also. I'm composing a kvetchy post for tomorrow about just that.

    1. It takes me a couple of days to adjust to Daylight Savings time. I wish they wouldn't change things!

  8. Yes. I've lost time because of sleeping at odd hours. It is discombobulating.

    Love,

    1. I haven't had that experience, but I'm sure if you work odd shifts, it can happen.

  10. HA! No, it's never happened to me, but our younger son did something similar when he was a teenager. He used to go hunting with his dad and a bunch of other guys, and one time, he hit the rack early and slept so hard, when he woke up a couple hours later, he thought it was time to get up. My husband said he asked him, "Do you mind if I go to bed first...?"

    1. I"m glad I came home when I did, or he might've been walking to the bus stop!

    1. It's probably happened to my husband since he likes to take naps, too.
