Sometimes, I get disconnected from my present reality.

These moments are fast and fleeting lasting only seconds at a time. But they are undeniably intense and visual. The only thing I can liken it to is an out-of-body experience.

They usually go something like this:

Why is this 42 pound fusion reactor calling me, "Daddy?"

Who is this boy who is eye to eye with me, but not even half my age? Why am I telling him what to do? Why do I answer my phone whenever he calls? Why does he make me angry? Why do I want so bad for him to succeed?

I know at some point in my past I fell in love...but why is this woman in my personal space and why is she telling me what to do?

...Who are these people?

...How did this happen?

...Where am I?

I'd be surprised if I was the only one who's experienced this. Here's a place where you can be honest with yourself, if no one else. Has something like this ever happened to you? Let me know in the comments.
