"Too many legs! Far too many legs. Can't play football. Trip myself up."

"Chicken soup. Get down with that funky stuff. Mmmmmm."

__________

Karen's note: I have to be honest, I was poking at Adam with my feet a bit when he started talking about legs. I've figured out that sometimes I can get him talking by wiggling around.

  8. Kristin,

    Good observation. And, believe it or not, he said "too many" about something ELSE as well last night, but I'm saving it for while we're away on honeymoon.

  10. You know, reading the post this morning, I suddenly "heard" Stewie (from Family Guy) saying them. The insults are especially fitting to Stewie's character. Adam sounds hilarious in the sound clips, but just imagine Stewie. It adds another level of hilarity! :)

    ReplyDelete
  11. That is dead on! And Adam will love that point, as he is a Family Guy fan.

  12. Honeymoon starts two weeks from yesterday. We'll be volunteering at an elephant orphanage in Thailand.

  13. I wonder how many legs is "too many"??

    ReplyDelete
  14. Does he know you do this :-)

    My stepsons used to argue in their sleep! At least that's what it sounded like they were doing- they'd both start going... it was quite amusing.

  15. I wish my GF says things like that while she's asleep... He's one of a kind hahahahah

    Nice blog!

  17. Have you ever thought that the brilliant stuff coming out of his mouth is purely Id? Like a hilariously witty little demon living inside him?

    ReplyDelete
  18. Actually, I don't think so, I was a little confused myself!

    Brian, what makes you think I have big feet?!

  20. Karen, just remember, elephant trunks should be used for elephant things only. Nothing else.

    Enjoy the honeymoon!

  23. That chicken soup line is soooooo my facebook status! Lmao!

  24. The only thing that could make it any better is if you could add the video of what he is seeing when he blurts these things out. But then some things are best left to the imagination.

    Loving the blog.

    Enjoy your honeymoon!

  25. Now, when he mentions "football", is he talking American football, or as we Yanks call it, Soccer? Maybe he was hinting at the Super Bowl?

    Love the blog, it's one of my favorite things to check out every morning when I get to work (shhh) ;).

    ReplyDelete
  26. Video: it would be really boring. He really does just lay there.

    Football: I HAVE to assume it's football. Like, real football. He's a pretty serious football fan. Although, he has been known to say weirdly American things now and then, so who knows? I just can't presume to ever know for sure what STM is talkin about.

  27. Omg... this stuff is absolute GOLD!!!! I have NEVER laughed so hard in all my life!!! and I've been accused of talkin in MY sleep!!! This is CLASSIC!!! Keep it coming!!! Ray of Western Australia

  28. By the way I spent half of this morning figuring out a full set of lyrics to StupidFuckingCuntyBollocksExpialidocious. I'll comment it when I'm done...

    "Of course you could say it backwards, which is docious-ali-expibollocks-cuntyfuckingstupid, but that's going a bit far, don't you think?" "Indubitably!"

    ReplyDelete
  29. I like what your husband says in his sleep...mine talks in a foreign language(he doesn't know any language other than English, not fluently anyway), mumbles incoherantly, or when he does make sense, it's usually accompanied by a creepy chuckle that sends chills down my spine. Gotta love STM!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Thanks so much for this site. Was his chicken soup as funny audibly as it was to read? LOL

    ReplyDelete
  31. hey ... to cushion the blow, there just might be an alternative/football out there in dreamlands of Adam in dreamstate of a commercial with swirls of funky chicken soup cans with legs of all shapes and sizes ( that's whoever eats, slurps and laps up this comfort food ) pitching a new crazed dance since the ol'funky chinken - - - a newfangled new age hip hop version, or how about the comeback of my fav --- the 80's disco - - - or a rap so far fetched, as sleeping Adam could easily pull this off where others may not dare try . . .(hint,hinting from afar)

    - - - from a slight nudging of the KarenKind . . .boy. . . you two could really have a leg-up on the competition 4sure and not chickenshyofit ... it could be that best medicine; that slighter cure for the common cold of a pickmeup, or make that a laugh for the heart that could replace a half hour of a workout through the tummy ... a thought sequel...

    at least you won't trip yourself up with the can-clanging Adam. . . but i can't promise the dents effect when someone gets out of line at the Hall; in their jester of fun doing their crump'n breakdance ...till they're kicked to the curb...
    noisy as all...

  35. Karen- not video of him sleeping, video of what he's dreaming when he's blurting things out. That would be priceless.

    ReplyDelete
  36. To Cut-N-Jump,

    My thoughts exactly! I kind of feel sorry for Adam in that he does not remember these dreams: He's the ultimate egomaniac in the center of his own Magical Universe who has no problem speaking his mind or telling someone to F@%K Off when need be! Each dream must be a one Hell of a ride!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Oh I wish, I really do wish my dreams were related to my sleep-talking. It is unfortunate that sleep-talking and dreaming are unrelated. Which is a shame because if they were related then I would certainly have the best dreams to document!!

  38. You know. Every day this never fails to make me smile. I just had a really crappy day, but Adams nightly 'adventures' never fail to make me feel better.

    Thanks to both of you for making my life a little brighter. ^_^

  39. I think Tim Berton would be scared if he was in Adams dreams lol

  40. I still think you should check out www.slowwave.com: if not for inspiration, then at least to get some amusement from the nightly adventures going on in other folk's heads...... 7@=e

  41. VonMalcolm- while it may be funny to watch, Adams thoughts would no longer be his own.

    And while I said some things are best left to the imagination- this would be in keeping with respecting his privacy. I can dig that.

    Adam- they sure would be! Keep on with it. Some of the phrases are just GOLDEN!

  44. Just when you think it can't get any sillier, he goes and says "Chicken Soup. Get down with that funky stuff." !!!

  45. I can't believe this blog has so may views. I should just make up shit and become famous too.

  46. i was just in thailand - for my birthday actually - come to think of it, that's where we found out about sleep talkin man - and elephants are my favorite animal. i was heading back anyway, but now i really have to. must find the elephant orphanage. can't wait to read adam's midnight musings then. woot!

    ReplyDelete
  47. lol man i sort of wish this was all made up!! so that we could get more freakin hilarious quotes faster!!!! but then again it would take away from the unbelievable awesomeness of him coming up with this in his sleep!!! XD

    ReplyDelete
  48. Karen, I've got to tell you... I've been known to manipulate my husband's words as well. The legs/feet are easy, because you can just reach over and jack with them. For example, one night I woke up to him shaking me and saying "shhhhhh". I talk back to him so he'll continue... sometimes works, sometimes doesn't.

    "Why are we shhhh-ing?"
    "WATCH where you step!!! They'll getcha'."
    (side note: we are from Texas. My husband is from a small town and sometimes, his thick-backwoods-country accent shows itself. This was certainly one of those times. So redneck-up your reading....)
    "What will Chris?"
    "Easy does it.... shhhh."
    (He is now begun to wriggle around, almost in a hopping from one foot to another position.)
    "Mmmhmm. What's going on babe, what is it?"
    "Watch out! It's them Texas Rattlers! Rattlers. Hear em'. Shhhhh."
    (Begins moving around more.)
    "Ooooh, they ARE scary. Aren't you afraid of snakes though, shouldn't you get away?"
    "Well hell yeah. They scare the shiiiiit out of me."
    (Begins poking his legs with my feet....)
    "Oh, oh! They're gettin' me. Shhhh. Oh god. Shit! Rattlers. Slither, slither, shake, shake, shake."

    ...more was said, but words couldn't be made out. It was one of my all time favorites. That, and the time he sat up straight in bed and said, "Strike a pose!" ...and laid back down. I should lay off the Madonna some, eh?

    Anyways, point is.... this blog makes my day! And I am soooo glad I am not alone. I only wish I could hear it as frequent and had more randomnly-hilarious statements!

  49. the chicken soup quote would be super cute on one of the aprons you offer lol. i think your husband is hilarious! i read what he has to say every evening and call my bf to tell him. we laugh with you two a lot! =]

  50. This blog just makes me laugh all the time! I love it. Especially the feet one. Haha! There are words that I'm to young to hear (or so my parents think) but I hear them at school. So what the heck, I may as well read it right?!

  51. I'm so going to make chicken soup for dinner now!
