Can't figure this one out! Alarm went off at the
regular time. Hit the snooze once. My wife and I
got up, had coffee, and I washed up and got ready
for work (same routine every work day). Came back
in the kitchen, where my wife poured me a cup of
coffee. Sat down, put my shoes on. Need to
mention that there are 3 clocks in the kitchen,
microwave - digital, coffee pot - digital, and
wall clock - analog.
Also have a "bird" clock in the living
room and my wife swears she heard the robin
"sing" - 7:00 a.m. Well, after I get
ready for work and I'm drinking my coffee, my
wife says "look at the clock!" I look
and it says 8:22 a.m. - not 7:22 a.m. that it should have.
I check my watch - 8:22 a.m. I go to the bedroom, the
clock says 8:27 a.m. (it was set 5 minutes fast), I
check the alarm - set for 6:02 a.m. (the correct
time). An hour was lost and I can't figure for
the life of me where it went!
I've overslept before, once or twice, but knew
it. This is freaking me out! Best that I can
figure, it happened after 7:00 a.m. Both my wife and
I were involved. The only difference in our life
style was that we went to dinner for Mother's day
at 2:00 p.m. Sunday afternoon. I have no explanation
for what happened. Could it have been an
abduction? This is the first time in my life
anything like this has happened to me and I can't
explain it. The only physical effects I had was
that I had to take a couple of aspirin
(ibuprofen) at work because of a headache.
Have you ever heard this happening before? Your
reply would be appreciated. Thank you.
How long does the snooze go for? 10
minutes or an hour? It is most likely both of you overslept and do not remember. If you had an abduction
experience during this interval, it would be
called missing time. More importantly, if you
have been abducted before, there will be clues in
your personal history. You will have to ferret
them out. Most people are not abducted as adults
for the first time. There is usually a
long-standing history starting in childhood that
precedes it. You need to evaluate what other things have happened in your life.
