First of all I am happy to announce that yesterday was my best day of views since I started this blog last May! I thank you all so much for how you make this blogging adventure a wonderful part of my day and my life!
Since a lot of you might have liked my first Tidbit last week I found a friend a little disappointed when I told him that I won’t share one each week. Since I cannot look into sad eyes (not even imagined) I opened my little treasure box, digged a little deeper, and … here we go.
I was 12 or 13 and part of a choir of children between 8 and 16 years of age. Our choir and one of another part of the country went to an event to Bâle (Switzerland) for a big singing event with television recording. I don’t remember what it was but it doesn’t matter for the story anyway. During the day we were strolling around in groups through the city supervised by a grown up. It was fun but for some reason we did not really find a connection to the kids of the other choir. At night we stayed at a youth hostel – up to eight kids in one room. I was lucky. We were just four in a room. Next to us a group of kids of the other choir. During the night they were like having a big party going almost all night long. I was angry because I was tired and wanted to sleep.
When I woke up in the morning I found myself in a lower bed, although my bed actually was a loft bed. I was lying in that bed with my feet on the floor. As if I was sitting and then just lay down. When I looked around I was shocked. Where were I? I finally realized that I was in the neighbour room .
I had no idea how I got there. Thank God everybody was asleep. I tiptoed out of the room and hurried to my room next door. I laid in my bed and just hoped that no one had noticed anything. I had no explanation but the one I must have sleepwalked. (I experienced that one more time, which was less scary for me but more for my mother.) When everybody was slowly awakening a friend asked me where I was. She said she woke up at night but my bed was empty. I said that I went to the restrooms once and that it must have been that time though… I was afraid to be asked by one of the neighbour room kids. But thank God they might not have noticed me. 😌
Well that was really disturbing! Just to make sure: That was the only time in my life I did not know how I got into another bed… lol
In Love and Light!
