I’ve told you before that my hubby has a sleep talking problem right? Um, hello? Remember Little Dickie?
The past couple nights he’s had some good ones. Both right when he was falling asleep – which is often when the very best conversations come out. Those times where I have to stop and think, “Wait. What did he just say? Is he asleep?”. My favourite are when you can decipher the things he says and figure out that they somehow relate to his hobbies or his job. Which, I think, both of these do.
A few nights ago we were just about to go to sleep. Sometimes if we’re chatting in bed before we say goodnight I say something like “Is there anything else we need to say?”. I don’t know why I do this. I guess just to make sure everything that needs to be said about the day is said.
His response? “What do you want me to say something about? My day? Or your new gun? Or that bolt that goes in and out of it?”
Say WHAT now?
Last time I checked I did not have a new gun. Heck, I don’t even have an old gun. And the bolt? I’m not sure what it is or where it goes in and out of.
Then last night on the brink of sleep, I rolled over to cuddle him as the big spoon.
I sighed and said “Ah. I wish I like cuddling while I sleep but I just don’t.”
Him: “You do like cuddling while you sleep. You just don’t like cuddling while you’re falling asleep”. (See? He was still awake during this comment. You’re about to see how quickly boyfriend falls asleep).
Me: “Whatever. You never cuddle me while I’m asleep.”
Him: “That is not true. You have … no idea how often I … cuddle you … right on … the side of that railing.”
(FTR, The … indicate the pauses in his speech. Which is a sure fire way of knowing that whatever he’s about to say is going to be cracked.)
So watch out. When you’re least expecting it, you’re going to find me and my hubby cuddling close … right on the side of that railing.
