I don't know if there is a technical term for this, but you know the time between when you are awake and you are really asleep? That moment just before you lose conciousness? I think there is something wacked that happens to your brain at that very moment.

A few nights ago, my dad visited me - clear as day, walked up, smile and was about to say something to me - I had a violent reaction to the vision and woke up immediately, in a daze thinking that I had really seen him. Wow.
Why is it that when people meet siblings, parents etc... they immediately say "Wow, I see the resemblence?" What is it about people that makes them complete morons in the presence of related folks? Just because I am related to someone, does not mean that I look like them, nor does it mean that I want to hear that I look like them, resemble them or have the same eyes, nose, big ass, thick legs etc...

This annoyance piggy-backs one that happens to my wife all the time - just because two people have red hair and happen to be in eye-shot of each other does NOT mean they are related!

Jesus people, next time you meet brothers, sisters, parents w/kids just shut the hell up and do not say the following - "OH, I see the resemblence." If you are wrong (like they sisters are adopted for example) then we get to laugh at your expense and you look like an ass.
