The Unfamiliar Familiar

Write about a character who wakes up one day to find their familiar world slightly shifted, creating an uncanny atmosphere.

As they go about their usual day, everything appears normal, yet subtly altered. Familiar people appear slightly off, well-known buildings are just a bit misplaced. This prompt insists on psychological unsettlement, finding fear in the frequent, and questioning one’s sanity in a world so eerily like our own.
