I have never be truly hypnotized. I pretended once at camp that I was while my friends asked me a bunch of questions about who I liked and who I hated. During my pregnancies I gave hypno-birth some consideration... but never saw it through.
I guess the closest I have ever been to being hypnotized was during my long drives home from school in college. It's called highway hypnosis.
Recently I have stumbled upon a new hypnosis. But I have not come up with a fancy name for this new mental condition. Right now the long working title is: thinking about all the other things I have to do while reading the SAME book to my 3 year old, the same book every night before bed for the last month. Kinda wordy, I know. But whatever its name ends up to be - I'VE GOT IT BAD!!!
I have been reading Bunny Mail to Braden on and off for a year... and most recently EVERY night for about a month. While I am reading, I find myself check listing in my head all the things I need to do ... and when I snap out of it I will have read a few pages and not even remembered doing it.
It is such an odd feeling. Kinda worrisome too... I mean, what else am I hypno-ing through?
