Have you ever woken someone up, and they start talking to you about the things that they are currently dreaming about?
I woke my brother up last night when his friend called him, and here was our conversation:
Tom “Is it okay if I put this here?” (Pointing at his bed).
Jim “Is it okay if you put what here?”
Tom (Points at his bed again) “This”
Tom “Is it okay if I put this cot here?”
Tom (Starts looking around his room with very puzzled look on his face)
Jim “What are you talking about?”
Tom “Never mind. Forget about it”
So I put two and two together and realize that he thinks we’re still at the hotel that we slept at last night in Chicago where we ordered a cot for our buddy to sleep on. We had a good laugh about it later on.
Another instance in which this occurred was when I woke my roommate up a while back and he started talking to me about computer hardware. We laughed about this for weeks because we knew he loved his old computer parts but we never thought he actually dreamt about them.
