Accidental Naps Are Fun Too

I took a nap in my car during my lunch break today. I've found I do that a lot more frequently when I stay up until 1:30 playing video games three nights a week. I'm such a child. But anyway, it was the best nap I can remember ever taking (well, purposely taking).

I found out today that the driver's seat in the Legend goes so far back that you're practically horizontal. It went so far back that I thought it was broken. And then I had the pure genius idea of removing the passenger headrest and using it as a pillow, which worked beautifully. And a light rain started as soon as I laid back. And it was about 50 degrees outside, meaning my car was about 65 degrees. So I used my jacket as a makeshift blanket and nodded off.

The reason I know it was the best nap ever is because I woke up and forgot where I was. I was like, "Oh, I'm awake. Wait, where am I? Am I in a bed? No, my pillow is leather. Oh, it's a car. Weird. What time is it? Oh, yeah… I'm at lunch. Man, that was good nap!" And I was totally okay with getting up and walking inside. It was the perfect amount of sleep for a nice power nap. I didn't even miss my Snooze button.

The only problem now is that I'm afraid that in reality I'm still in my car, and everything I'm experiencing right now is a dream. And I might spend days, months, or years in this dream without realizing it. And then I'll wake up in my car and realize I've woken up for real. And then I'll miss the dream world so much that I'll want to go back and I'll spend all my time sleeping. Okay, maybe I should stop watching The Matrix and Inception and The Chronicles of Narnia back-to-back-to-back every weekend.

You need a totem. Just in case.
