Charles S's SOBE 635
I was in the 5th grade practicing for a school play. when the time came to do the play in front of the whole school I was so nervous that I could barely breath. I was sitting in the front row on the auditorium watching all the classes come in. The next thing I knew was I was walking up onto the stage by myself, when I got half way up I turned to see myself still sitting in the chair, I never moved. when I noticed myself sitting there I immediately was brought back into my body. It was like I had never left my body, it felt the same being outside as it was being inside.
