Saturday night, after working with my music software on my computer for a goodly number of hours, I was finally in bed and in that nether world between consciousness and unconsciousness.
I was abruptly (and rudely) awoken by a loud "pop!" This was no ordinary "pop!" It had sort of that mechanical Pshhhh! edge to it - almost as if my computer or iPod had finally bitten the dust.
Naturally, I sat upright in bed - not a good idea when your room is the one with the bunk - and, after a second of looking around, decided everything was safe and I should continue my plans to go to sleep. If anything was fried it wasn't worth getting worked up about it in the middle of the night.
I still have no idea what that was. Everything seems to be working fine. I'm forced to conclude that it was just one of those subconscious things, like those spontaneous leg spasms you get sometimes. It's a great excuse for couples:
"Honey, why did you kick me? Was I snoring again?"
"Leg spasm. Go back go sleep."
