I have a morning routine I follow which begins with getting up at the fairly reasonable hour of 7:30AM, coffee, blogging, and then writing for a half hour before I take Jonah out for a walk, shower, and head off to work at 10AM. Last week I had just come back from my walk and was in the kitchen drinking water when I noticed the time - which should've said somewhere around 9:30AM. Instead, the clock said 4:10PM.
Now I knew that wasn't right since I'd just gotten up and it was definitely morning outside, but I did go into the other room and check another clock, just to be sure. Because if the kitchen clock was right, then I'd lost over six hours of my day with no recollection of where I was, what I'd been doing.
This of course sparked the idea, what if that really happened? What would you do to try and find out how you lost six hours? Probably check your phone for messages, right? I mean, I'm sure my boss would've called or texted to find out why I didn't show up at work. Maybe go outside and look at the car, see if the gas gauge was different, which would tell me I might've used the car. If I was really desperate to know I might try hypnosis, although I tried that before it it didn't work. Or maybe a doctor to see see of anything was physically wrong. Then...I don't know...maybe freak out a little?
Anyway. The kitchen clock was wrong and I was right on schedule, but I couldn't help wonder, how would that play out?
What would you do if you discovered you lost six hours?
