This is 2014
I didn’t sleep much last night, about 5 hours; I was up at about 6am doing a few things, waiting to take my asthma medication at 8am. Then after taking it I laid down for a nap, just an hour or two…
I woke up and looked around, “What just happened, why is it dark?” I look at the clock, “Fuck! Why is it 10:19pm?!”
I was a tad freaked out at first. It was like only a second had passed by, like I blinked and suddenly it was 10pm. I slept right through the allocated times for taking my medication, missed lunch and dinner, missed ‘The Amazing Race’, and now I feel totally out of it. To add to the confusion, Sergio tried to convince me that 10 years had passed.
Sergio: Dude, you got beamed in time.
Nikita: I know.
Nikita: Fucking weird.
Sergio: You’ve been missing for the last 10 years, you know that?
Nikita: Hahaha, shut up.
Sergio: This is 2014.
Sergio: We’re an uber evolved civilisation now.
Nikita: Funny how no blogs have updated in ten years.
Sergio: Ah, yeah… that’s ’cause we went on strike when you disappeared.
I hate to say this, but I was so confused that I actually checked the date quickly… Just to be sure.
I do feel pretty good though, really refreshed, as one would after that much sleep. My body must have needed to catch up on lost sleep, but it would have been nice if I had received some sort of a memo about The Great Sleep, something along the lines of, “Kitta, huge sleep planned, Dec 2nd. Be there.”
My new nickname is ‘Sleeping Beauty’.
