Yesterday, I had a surreal experience. Actually, friends often tell me that my experiences are surreal, but I'm hoping that reflects more on their lifestyle than mine.
My experience was this: After doing all the things I make myself do in the morning before I sit down with coffee and a book, I grabbed a book I'd picked up from our Share-it library in the Fitness Room of our building. No, that is not surreal. I have fewer books than I used to have, and enjoy taking down books that I've finished or finished with, so that I can righteously take a book someone has left there. I sat down with my coffee and the paperback, and when I finished the page I was on, I tried to click the bottom corner to turn the page. I didn't know whether to laugh or click again.
I thought it might be a good idea to see if "surreal" was really the descriptor I wanted to use. Found this: surreal: having the disorienting, hallucinatory quality of a dream, unreal.

I thought this image was an interesting if dramatic addition to the surreality.
