Sleep talking is weird. Sometimes it’s hilarious, sometimes it’s terrifying. Sometimes you’re made queen of the Boy Scouts (I’ll get to that). But it’s always weird. I want to hear your stories.
My husband has had several glorious sleep talking episodes throughout our relationship. It happened again last week. Eyes wide open, he asked me where our daughter’s videos were.
“Videos? What videos?”
“THE VIDEOS, COURTNEY. Because she’s scary? The ones where she’s crunchy?”
And he was so insistent and convincing, honestly, I thought, “is it me? What am *I* missing here?” Then he went on.
“I don’t know what you want me to say. What are you not getting? You know how you had the case transferred to you? What are you doing? WHAT ARE YOU DOING?”
That’s when I turned the lights on. Because it’s really scary when someone starts yelling “WHAT ARE YOU DOING?” at you while asleep.
Past experiences have been less scary. Like the time he said, “Courtney. I want you to be proud. Of the Boy Scouts. We’ll make you queen deer. Queen Bambi.” He then woke up and we were talking and laughing about that, when he said “You know Annie? She’s a reporter.”
And Annie is definitely not a reporter. Because she is our dog.
I also used to wake up to him staring at me wide-eyed and smiling. I’ll take Queen Bambi anytime.
What’s your best sleep talkery?
