Time Slip

Time Slip

Waking up one morning there wasn't too much out of the ordinary, except that I realized something very odd had happened during the night. When I woke up, three hours had passed. I knew three hours had passed since I had gone to bed because I keep a close eye on when I go to bed and when I am up. Somewhat of an insomniac at times, I do tend to keep a close eye on those things.

Well, this particular night I noticed that. It did not seem too strange at first except for one or two little details. Usually, when a person sleeps they rumple up the bedding during the night. Sometimes some sheets or blankets half on or half off or twisted around. Either way, the odd thing was the first cover on the bed. It was turned back halfway across the bed in a nice neat line and at an angle.

The rest of the blankets and the sheet were neat. Nothing was out of place. It was like I hadn't moved the entire time I was in bed. Which is not how I sleep. Then there's the timeline.

Coupled with the fact that I had absolutely no recollection of the three hours. I did not know if I had gotten up in the night, or if I had gone to the bathroom and back, or if I had gotten up to watch some TV because it was all a blank. This happened some years ago and I still think about it and wonder what happened that night when I was so fast asleep. WAS I asleep?

Where was I if I wasn't asleep? Where did I go? How did I get back and why could I not remember where I was, or what happened?

Was it just a coincidence?

Or was it a time slip? Why were the blankets so neatly turned?

Was that significant?

Has anyone else ever experienced this?

Fact or fiction?

You decide!
