This morning I was in the bathroom taking a shower and my eyes were nonchalantly drawn towards the bathmat laying on the floor. You know what it’s like when you’re situated in an inactive environment – there’s nothing specific to look at, so you just end up staring at something and daydreaming. Anyway, after about 20 seconds of semi-conscious fixation at the bathmat, my now slightly-out-of-focus eyes picked up on a pattern made by the folds and creases within the bathmat, and quite bizarrely, I could clearly make out the word “FIG.” I then blinked my eyes a few times, and it was gone.
This experience brought me back to when I was in my early/mid teens. I would wake up in the morning and the first thing I would see would be a wisp of sunlight sneaking through the gap where the two halves of my curtains met. Continuing my routine of awakening, I would rub my eyes a few times, prop my head up on my pillow, and lay and stare at the curtains for a while before actually rising from bed. On many occasions, I would make out patterns and words within the fabric of the curtains, in a similar way to the “FIG” I saw this morning.
