Sleep paralysis is weird
I’ve read about sleep paralysis on more than one occasion but always brushed it aside because I typically wake up not without any recollection of even having a dream.
Imagine my surprise then, when I woke up mid-way through the night, unable to move in your own bed. To drift back into sleep and realize you can’t even move in your dream.
Maybe it’s better to stay in the dream world? Wrong. You’re in the back seat of a car. Unable to move. Driver’s a maniac. Bombing through traffic at high speeds, maneuvering through mountain roads with the wheels just hanging onto the asphalt, then through a dark alley, accelerating at full speed into a brick wall. You want to scream, but you can’t. You want to look to the door and jump out. But you can’t. So you try to scream some more, and the noise finally comes out .
Except the scream happens in meatspace rather than dream space and you’re wondering why you’re sitting upright and in bed all of a sudden, covered in sweat and shaking.
Probably scared the shit out of anything within earshot and may have woken up my roommate.
A lesson to be learned from this priest. If someone calls you gay, show them the size of your asshole to prove them wrong! Bonus points if you present it in to an audience of old men who may or may not have had a history of sexual deviance with minors.

Tennessee’s oldest and largest conservative organization is mounting a campaign to force the resignation of Representative Scott DesJarlais after a taped phone call of Mr. DesJarlais, an anti-abortion Republican, appeared to show him pressuring a mistress to terminate a pregnancy.
