Musical confusion

I had my piano tuned yesterday, since I'd taken the day off to recover from the weekend. I also had my (beautiful new!) garage door installed in the morning. Due to my late arrival the night before, and the early arrival of the garage door people that morning, I didn't get a whole lot of sleep.

When the piano tuner arrived in the late afternoon, I let him in, showed him the piano, and went upstairs to read and stay out of his way while he worked. It was kind of cold upstairs, so I pulled my comforter over me as I read my book, laying on my bed. A cat came over and curled up on my back. I was warm and relaxed. The drone of the piano being tuned echoed rhythmically in my head, and my eyelids got very heavy.

I slid out of my glasses, and a pillow made its way under my head. Yes, I fell asleep, all alone with a strange piano tuner in my house. Probably not too smart. I woke up in the middle of a weird dream in which I was sharing an apartment building with Tara Lipinski, to the sound of my name being called from downstairs. I scrambled out of bed in a disoriented panic, cats and covers flying every which way. I hurried down the stairs, looked at the fuzzy piano tuner, and realized I'd left my glasses upstairs.

He said he was finished, so I went and got him a check, discretely fetching my glasses and finger-combing my hair at the same time. I signed something or the other, hopefully not anything too important, let him out, and finally caught my breath. My mind stayed blurry and confused for quite some time after that; I received a phone call from C a little later and was fairly incoherent as I tried to pretend I knew whatever it was we were talking about....
