Fucked up Wednesday

That was...just bizarre.

So...I was supposed to play Basketball...er...earlier. We normally play on Tuesday afternoons, but since Tuesday was ass and Wednesday was gorgeous, we had deferred to Wednesday. I came home on Wednesday afternoon to do some reading, and an hour later it was 4 PM, and I was feeling pretty wiped. I figured I had well over an hour before I needed to get ready for ball, so I lay down for a quick nap. Apparently I should have set an alarm, beause I didn't wake up until 7. Damn.

"Well," thought I, "I've got nothing super critical going on tonight, so I suppose I'll call Melissa and see what's up with her." Opening my phone, however revealed that my phone was already running out of battery (piece of crap battery) and also I had a message. So I plugged in my phone and listened to the message from Melissa inviting me over for a barbeque and bonfire at her place. How felicitous. I didn't know if they'd still be eating, though, since I'd slept for the last 3 hours, and wasn't sure when she'd called, so I figured I'd call over and check rather than just heading directly there.

After a couple of rings, she answers, and we exchanged general pleasantries, which clued me in that:

"Were you asleep?"
"Mm...yes...shouldn't you be? It's 7 AM."

Let me just break that down for anyone who's skimming. I slept from 4 PM until 7 AM. I was asleep for FIFTEEN HOURS!

That all sort of hit me at once, and I just broke down laughing. I told her to go back to sleep, and opened the window to see that yes, in fact, I was looking not at twilight, but rather at dawn. So...that was a nice little nap. My girlfriend thinks I'm crazy, now, I'd guess. Assuming she hadn't already made that leap. Did I say 'thinks'?
