Wake Up

About 20 years ago I went out to a pub lunch to meet my friend's new girlfriend's, to celebrate her birthday, and to meet her, her family, and her friends. I accidentally drank far far too much with lunch and my next memory is waking in her parents' kitchen with my head on the table. Tea, cakes and sandwiches were being served around my unconscious form. Unbelievably I made quite a good impression on her parents.

I have a friend who used to play guitar for a living, and he used to really drink. He has a couple of even better stories about waking up in unlikely situations:
He woke up to the sound of braking glass and spilled liquid and found himself in the middle of a road accident involving a milk float. As he came closer to wakefulness he remembered that he was supposed to be working as a milkman.

Another time he was woken by very loud music. He found himself with a guitar, on stage, in front of 15,000 people. He had dozed off while playing it.
