I'm counting this as "semi-LD" as I did a reality check (fingers through the hand) and it failed to indicate a dream. For whatever reason I didn't do another one. Still, it's progress. The funny thing is I've been thinking about a lot about dreams signs and which I've been missing in my dreams. There was no dream sign; I was having a conversation with someone, one of us told a bad joke and I suddenly thought "Wait, I think I'm dreaming this."
Excited to see what happens tonight!
Yeah it often does happen like that with a person becoming spontanously lucid out of the blue.
I'd say you were lucid in this dream.. as you'd became aware that you were probably dreaming. Its the reality check part which screwed you up. Ive seen many times when people realise they are actually dreaming but still to do a reality check (allowing doubts to creep in).. those checks often seen to fail then(the subconsciousness acts on the doubt! hence the check then fails).
If you are thinking you are dreaming something, you can be 95% sure you probably are and you can try at this point to treat it as a dream and see what happens, they often will soon show they actually are. Try to leave that doubt behind (of cause do not go jumping off of any tall buildings till you are 100% sure you are dreaming!).
I strongly suggest to not do that reality check again (well anytime in the near future anyway) as a check which has failed once is more likely to fail again and screw up things for you. Choose other reality checks now to do.

I hadn't thought of that, but it's a REAL good point! I'll have to find a new favorite reality check.
