  • I used to keep my alarm clock across the room from my bed, so I'd have to leave the comfort of warm blankets to turn off the alarm.

    One morning, I discovered that I'd been sleeping in a position that cut off circulation to my legs.

    When the alarm went off, I did my usual throw-back-the-covers and dash-across-the-room bit - but found myself face down on the carpet without realizing how I'd gotten there! I tried to stand up three times before it sunk in to my fogged brain that something was amiss.

    Eventually, I crawled over to the alarm and turned it off. After that, I lurched around in circles until function was restored.

    Strange feeling, eh? Betrayed by your own body like that with no warning?
