Mind meld

I might have been a little bleary and half asleep.

Wait, let's go back a step.

Have you ever seen Star Trek? It's a science fiction TV show about, oh, sorry, right. You said yes.

Excellent. So much easier.

Well there's this thing that Spock does. Spock is a character on Star Trek who...

Right, right, great. You know Spock. Excellent.

So he does this thing called the Vulcan Mind Meld. It's, like, a Vulcan telepathic cultural sort of thing. He puts his hand with a deliberate, unusual spreading of the fingers on someone's face and they form a telepathic link.

In the middle of the night last night I strangely woke up with my hand on my face very much in the formation of one doing a Vulcan Mind Meld. If felt oddly comfortable, though it was also most curious. I left my hand as it was and I thought "This is just like Spock's hand doing a Vulcan Mind Meld!"

And then I thought excitedly "I can tell what I'm thinking!"

If you were wondering, yes, you should comment. Not only does it remind me that I must write in intelligible English because someone is actually reading what I write, but it is also a pleasure for me since I am interested in anything you have to say.

I respond to pretty much every comment. It's like a free personalized blog post!

One last detail: If you are commenting on a post more than two weeks old I have to go in and approve it. It's sort of a spam protection device. Also, rarely, a comment will go to spam on its own. Give either of those a day or two and your comment will show up on the blog.
