This morning, after a terrible night of not being able to sleep, I fell asleep on the train somewhere after Pickering - something I rarely, rarely do.

You know that sensation of falling one will sometimes experience while dozing off? Yeah, that happened to me. And my leg shot out and I kicked this woman standing near me right in the shin. HARD. I also startled myself awake.

I was so embarrassed. I apologized profusely and got up and told her to sit. I insisted she sit. Then I left the coach and went to another because I was being stared at.

Happens all the time...deep slumber, full body twitch and scare myself and everyone else in my quad.

Highly embarassing, but I have learned to play it off by immediately grabbing my phone and pretending to check a message...hoping most will believe that the vibrate function scared me and they're not not sitting next to a sleep twitcher.
