Feeling Dubby

Dubby.  That was my grandma’s word for the feeling when you fall hard asleep in the afternoon and wake up feeling disoriented.  “I feel so dubby,” she would say after a nap.  My grandmother was an old Cornish woman and the word might have come from her homeland — which was Land’s End, at the very southwest tip of England — I don’t know.  She also said “haitch” and “zed” for the letters H and Z and wherever “dubby” happened to originate, I love the word.  I think it totally describes that state of being.
