Briefly I considered writing a serious post about being hypnotized but the sort of corny humor inherent in hypnosis just makes it impossible. Also, the story gets a little personal and nobody here wants to hear personal stories, right.
Nevertheless, I was hypnotized last night, or something very much like it.
I watched “K-Pax” a couple weeks ago, and there is a scene where Jeff Bridges hypnotizes Kevin Spacey by counting him down from five, and brings him back by counting him back up. I watched that scene and was all like, Oh sure, no watch?
Well, last night this person who hypnotized me didn’t even count me down from five. He didn’t even tell me I was being hypnotized, for that matter, which makes me wonder whether I was actually hypnotized or something else, hence the disclaimer in the second half of the first paragraph up there.
OTOH, he did count me back up from 5 to 1, which made me think, “Holy shit, I’ve been hypnotized!!!” (Verbatim quote, BTW, from around “4”).
Don’t ask me what went on in between, because I haven’t the faintest idea. I may have been doing naked George Burns impressions for the staff for all I know, although I did not smell of cigar smoke. Also, there was no staff. Anyway, another Kevin Spacey moment in my life.
It was really amazing; at least, I was really amazed. I still am.
Have you ever been hypnotized?
