I started to wake up in the middle of the night last night and I thought, “I’m not going to let any of my normal s**t wake me all the way up.” For a moment I though my mind would just go, “Oh, OK” and leave me alone and I began to settle back in to sleep.

So then my mind says, without context or provocation, “1981 was 30 years ago.”

I was awake for at least an hour thinking about how 1981 was 30 years ago, which truly does have nothing to do with what normally keeps me awake. Be careful how you phrase the things you ask for.
