I have an interesting talent: I can carry on a semi intelligent conversation even while drifting off to sleep. There have been several occasions when my wife has been talking to me and hasn’t noticed that I was snoozing. Unfortunately, ther illusion of wakefulness tends to evaporate pretty quickly when my dreaming mind hijacks the conversation.
Earlier tonight, for example, was my statement in the middle of a fairly ordinary conversation about the day’s events: “Flavor foods are an excellent way to destroy zombies!”
I still don’t know what that means. But at the time, it made perfect sense.
