Rewind

Today, I took the day off after assisting with Bring Your Child to Work Day yesterday. Doing this usually means getting off at 22:30 and then having to be back at work at 08:00. Sometimes, they offer to let me work a split-shift the day before so I can get home earlier. This time, I refused, because honestly, letting me off work a day earlier is not going to get me in bed any quicker. Most people can't go from late-shift to first-shift in a day, or even a day and a half.

So, not surprisingly, I slept in this morning. A little too long, and I was the unfortunate recipient of one of those headaches that come from too many hours in bed. The kind that do not go away as the day progresses, and often, have to be killed by taking yet another nap.

Said nap occurred as novacheckers was supposed to be returning home from work. She had called earlier to let know she'd be bringing home Rib Crib for dinner. When she got home, she phoned me to let me know she'd need help carrying in everything, except I missed the call. I ran to my phone to call her back, but as I was doing so, she was already at the door. I apologized for not getting to the phone soon enough, and helped her bring in the food.

We sat down at the kitchen table, and she described the goings on at N!Prime, and how certain players who hadn't posted on the new forum in quite some time were going to be getting a reminder notice that they'd been inactive. We began to talk about the characters they had developed, which ones we liked, and were hoping would become active again.

I heard someone coming up the stairs, so I went towards the computer room to take a peek at who was outside.

Just then, the front door opened, and novacheckers walks in. I'm on the sofa, and I wake up. She had just then returned home, and Rib Crib was out of the food I'd ordered. She kept trying to talk to me, but I had to try and focus and try to forget the past 10 minutes of my life, since they hadn't happened except in slept-too-long-have-horrible-headache-must-take-a-nap-land. On top of that, since I woke up in the middle of a dream, it was twice as hard to regain my conscious cohesion.

It took about 30 minutes to realign everything in my head.

Rewinding your life is hard.
