This is a crazy- but true story that happened to me two nights ago while I was sleeping. (The night of the day mom and diddy went home.) I still have a hard time believing it- but I have a reminder that it was not a dream.
I was up really early on Thursday morning- to the tune of 4:45 a.m. because Marcel had to work- I got him up, and went back to bed and went to sleep. I was extremely tired. At some point, I’m not sure what happened, but I must have caught my earring in something because my left earring fell out of my ear (it’s a small gold hoop that I wear all the time unless changing to other earrings) and I remember holding it in my hand and thinking that I needed to put it back in.
Instead, I fell asleep and sometime later (I don’t know how much time passed) I woke up and the earring was still in my hand. Apparently though, I didn’t realize it was an earring, because I put it in my mouth and proceeded to attempt to eat it. Yes, seriously!
When I bit into the gold- it was hard, so I woke up and realized what I was doing. I was still half asleep- so I put it in my ear and went back to sleep again. I woke up later thinking I’d had some weird and crazy dream- until I touched the earring and there was a huge dent in it where I’d bitten it. I was convinced that it didn’t happen, so I took the earring out of my ear- and sure enough- there’s a crimp in the earring where I bit it.
Crazy- I know. I guess this is a sign that I need to really get back on track with my eating- after all, even my gold earrings aren’t safe anymore.
