And so I woke up several times smaller. I've never been good with measurements and distances, so I don't know for sure, but I'm guessing about 50 times smaller than I was when I fell asleep.

I had fallen asleep on my chair. It's not something that I do often, but it happened last night. I was trying to watch some movie. It was bad, whatever it was. Bad enough to not keep me awake long enough to crawl to bed. I wonder if it's related somehow. Like, was it a move where a guy gets shrunk? I could appreciate the irony of such a situation.

The view from my chair is spectacular. What was a small distance before now appears vast and open to me. I see bookshelves and music far in the distance. It would take me all day to walk over there, it seems. It's not worth the effort. Not today, at least. I'm small for now, so I'm going to enjoy. I'm going to lay back and take in the view until I fall asleep. And when I dream, I'll dream of being full-sized -- in a room 50 times larger than mine.
