NOPE, THE PARASOL ISN'T A KIRBY IDEA I SWEAR
When I'm sleeping, sometimes I feel like I'm falling. Has this ever happened to anyone else?

I haven't swimmed into a pool for monthsPandapowah said:After spending a great portion of the day swimming, I would sometimes feel like I'm in water when I'm lying in bed.

No, there was no one else in the room, and nothing actually fell on me.
Anyway, happened only once, and creeped me out quite a bit.
That happens to me all the time! Sometimes I don't even run, I just casually walk and then trip and the shock makes me wake up.Mason Voorhees said:Sometimes I dream I'm running and I trip, so I wake up right before I smash my face into the concrete.
Thats funny, because I'm always tripping and running into things in real life, but in my dreams, I hardly ever have that problem. I'm very coordinated in my dreams, but in real life I'm a clutz. I've actually fallen UP stairs before.Charmander said:
Sort of, I'm just dropping off to sleep, then I feel the falling feeling, and then for some reason I land in bed, despite not having moved. It's a strange feeling.Miracle Matter said:When I'm sleeping, sometimes I feel like I'm falling. Has this ever happened to anyone else?
