Carin and I were sitting around talking the other day when somehow the subject turned to sleep. I’m not sure how it came up, but I mentioned that I think it’s weird that when you fall asleep with something on like a TV or radio, it always seems way louder when you wake up than it did when you went out. I thought that even though it was strange it was pretty common, but judging from the what in God’s name are you talking about type reaction I got when I brought it up, I’m not so sure anymore. So now I’m turning to you the people to help straighten either myself or Carin out. Please tell me I’m not the only one who’s ever fallen asleep to soft music and woken up to what sounds like a live concert or nearly had a heart attack after accidentally nodding off with the TV on because I’m sure that the cops are going to be at my door any minute to yell at me on behalf of the guy who lives on the other side of the wall. There’s no way I can be the only person this happens to and Carin has got to be the odd one, but I thought I’d better post this just in case. So please, help me out here. I’m curious now and I probably won’t be able to sleep until I get some kind of consensus one way or the other on this issue.
