For those who served in the RVAH Community, their families, and friends!
I think I resemble that remark.
One thing that also happens to me while I'm in my recently purchased recliner chair. The back of the chair is toward the kitchen while I face the TV. My wife will be in the kitchen and before she tries to ask me a question or start a conversation she will ask "are you awake?" When I signal my level of alertness she will then proceed with the conversation. I can only assume that if I do not answer she will then get me later with the "you are always dozing off".
