I woke up in a shadow this morning, trying to find my way to reality. I wavered. I cautiously turned to find the wall switch, but suddenly opened my eyes to the evening news on my recliner. It was not morning at all. The internal clock had somehow confused me as I drifted in and out of consciousness. I heard Mom calling me as she walked in the kitchen but then the shadow blurred my memory again. Silence. Where am I? Responding to Mom's call was impossible. My lips were frozen and I wondered if she saw me. Ringggggg. The phone alarmed me but I found myself fumbling for words of intelligence in spite of my stupor. "We are calling to find out if you have found any health insurance yet because we are offering a major medical for individuals....blah blah blah...." Click. I hung up on the unwelcome call. I'm also pissed because I was having a moment with Mom when someone so rudely interrupted. Now I will have to wait until she sometime again decides to penetrate my shadow and come to visit me from the heavens.
