Space Time Contiuum

I think I experienced one of these yesterday.

I came to work and I did some stuff, I know I got up to go to the bathroom once. And then all of a sudden it was time to go home. I didn't eat my lunch (odd since I NEVER pass up an opportunity to eat), I didn't pee the whole rest of my 8 hr day (also odd since I have a bladder the size of a walnut), I didn't drink any water, I didn't move all day.

I looked up at the clock and it was time to go home.

Maybe I slipped into a coma?

Maybe I experienced lost time due to an alien abduction? An out of body experience?

I really have no idea.

It's like that when I drive too. I have no idea how I get from point A to point B but all of a sudden there I am, where I wanted to go.

Friends see me driving and they wave or honk or jump up and down and I don't see them. A co-worker said she was behind me one day. She was honking and pulled up next to me with her windows down, waving, shouting my name and I sat immobile, staring straight ahead, not acknowledging her at all. She was so embarrassed, on the verge of anger and hurt feelings actually. She thought I was ignoring her on purpose.

I had to explain it's like that for everyone who sees me driving. For reals. I see no one. I see the road in front of me and that is it. It's weird. People make fun of me all the time for it.
