During the Oneiric Plague, the really big changes, like land and sea changing places and dogs taking on cat traits, happened during nighttime repose, but the really annoying small stuff came from short naps.
One afternoon when I just couldn’t keep my eyes open, my legs got all disproportionate, my left arm decided I was a heroin addict, and my face tried to float right off my head.
