My husband has been a notorious sleep talker/walker, its not often and only when he is REALLY tired or drained from the day/week. Nothing major or violent, sometimes it is funny and sometimes it’s annoying (mostly because it interrupts MY sleeping). Depending on the situation if it wakes me up I’ll calmly talk to him or reassuring him he can go back to sleep other times I play along and its really funny. Most of his dreams or instances, whatever you want to call them only last a few seconds, maybe a few minutes max so like I said nothing major. He also very rarely has NO CLUE what he dreamt about, sometimes he will vaguely say “Oh, right yeah makes sense I did that I was dreaming about XYZ.”
Last night he was hilarious and I just had to share:
I feel poking/prodding on my hip/waistline area and Darling Husband is kind of hovering over me, like half sitting up on one arm in bed. He was also whispering something, but it was very slurred. I swear when he sleep talks half the time its in jibberish. So the transcript goes a little like this:
“Shhh do you hear that” *more jibberish whispering*
I wake up – “No babe, I don’t see anything or hear anything.”
“Its there, how can you not see it?”
“I just don’t see it, go back to bed please.”
“How do you not care?’
“Babe I’m trying to sleep. Let’s go back to bed.”
“FINE! But you can’t be a P**** all your life!”
He giggles this like kiddish boy giggle and snickers too and rolls back over in bed and passes out.
I roll over to look at him and am like WTH just happened?!
Its worth mentioning he works in a job where he has a partner or multiple people in a construction type of environment so I know they are gruff men on the jobs, cussing and swearing and being “tough” with each other. There’s been nights he’ll sit up in bed and will be going to town with his hands saying “Eff this, you can’t do anything” “I can’t believe you did that! Way to eff up the job *insert guys name here*”. Sometimes I’ll hear him and play along and I will legit ask “What are you talking about?” he’ll say something to the effect of “What don’t you understand?” and I’ll say “I just can’t hear you babe, I don’t get it.” And he’ll huff and roll over and just act all flabbergasted I don’t understand what he’s saying.
Sometimes I wish I knew what he was dreaming just so I had context before I’m blindsided in the middle of my sleep, but then again its probably better that I don’t!
Any other bees have fun stories of your SO or yourself sleep walking/talking?
*and yes my Darling Husband has no medical condition for this. He’s seen the doctor and he is fine it only occurs once in a while when he is like extra super-duper tired*
