Why does that always happen when you're in the shower? 'cause it always happens to me in the shower.

zesty_pinto is correct. Combo of things. Plus it's that early morning grogginess that helps.

I know that feeling well, only reversed, every once in a while I'll get a little startle when life starts to feel real for a bit.

I concur tho, that the shower/bath always seems to provoke these moments of odd awareness of your own consciousness/being, etc.

What does that say about your life when the quirky moment is the real feeling? :P

Let me guess: I'm picturing the scenario...

You were there, using the soap on a rope doing your pits with a good sud down.

Then the water began to squeak oddly. The temperature just shifted hot and cold dramatically for some reason. As you attempted to get it back to normal, you heard a terrifying sound followed by loud thumping noises and muttered weeps of frustration bleeding into the door.

You wondered what it was, but then it started to get noisier. Steps, hard steps went closer to your shower door. Unsure what to do, whether it was a joke or an actual threat, you began to rinse out your half-done job to get yourself presentable.

But it was too late.

You saw the door open to face

someone holding a jar of marinade bitching to you about how hard it is to open the things to make some good wings.
