Misfiring neurons

So somewhere in the wee hours of last night, I suddenly half-woke-up, pushed at jcobleigh's arm, and asked, "Are you okay!?!"

He woke up abruptly.

He stared at me.

He said, "What?"

I said, "Do you want to specify a property?"*

He said, "What?"

I tried to explain. "We have a tool that can help you specify a--wait, no, that doesn't make any sense."

I thought really hard.

I tried again. "You can specify it with--no, that still doesn't make any sense."

He asked, "Are you okay?"

I thought really hard again. I felt like I was having normal thoughts inside my head, but the words my brain made my mouth say didn't make any sense. Like that disease, you know?

After I had that thought, I realized there was nothing else and I wanted to go back to sleep.

I said, "There is nothing else. Go back to sleep."

He flopped back onto his pillow and promptly fell asleep.

So did I.

Weird things happen when you sleep. Every once in a long while I half-wake up and experience odd hallucinations, my bathroom light on or animals flying around the room or being in an old bedroom. I started to worry until I found it was not uncommon when one is suddenly waking from deep REM sleep.
