The scene: Bed. The time: Yesterday morning. We've already been awake a while, had some toast in bed, now we're having a quiet cuddle. I'm snuggled up to Adam, he's got his arm thrown around me and his face nuzzled in my hair.

I just realize that he has drifted off to sleep, when he comes out with:
"Ga- ga- ga- gagging in your face!"
Oh, no! I'm not recording! I try and gently roll to the left, to reach the bedside table. I get the first couple of inches around, and Adam fully wraps his arm around me, pulls me into a vice-like embrace, and says:
"Why are you trying to escape? Stay! Aren't I a nice captor? Don't try and escape again."
Ok, that didn't work. Next I try sliding down toward the foot of the bed, out from under his arm. But I get stuck with his arm locked around my neck. He crows out:
"W.W.Eeeeeeeeeeeeeee, in the headlock!"
Finally, I just take my chances and heave myself out of his arms, lunging for the record button. I grab the laptop from the floor, and pop it open at the foot of the bed. And he's still talking:
"It's all cold. The boat's leaking. I feel the water... water...Ping pong balls! I know it. Ping pong balls. Ping pong..."
By now, I've started to type out what he's said before, and Adam hears the clicking of the keyboard....
"Great. Now it's fucking raining. What more can go wrong? ... FLOODING!"

...which is how he wakes himself up in a panic.

  13. Why don't you just get something that can record for 8 hours and start it before you go to sleep?

  19. Ok. So ya'll had me at pirate beard and I've been hooked (no pun intended) ever since. But today I have to wonder whether or not the blog is taking something away. I would hate to think that cuddle times would be constantly interrupted by thoughts of "where's the record button?!" and squirming to escape just for our sake.

  20. I don't know whether STM would do well in the WWE:
    all he seems to know is the sleeper hold....... 7@=Q

  21. Let the poor guy sleep

    ReplyDelete
  22. That's too funny. Especially because I live in Oklahoma City where it did flood "just a little bit" yesterday. STM is psychic! Hmmm. I wonder if he has predicted any more freak occurrences around the world...

    ReplyDelete
  23. Maybe, he was going to install those ping pong balls in the pirately beard to support his head above the horrific flood!

  24. Hah! I just read Lesley's comment and was about to ask if it was Adam's fault we were swimming here in Oklahoma City the other day, hehe. Was he dreaming about those storms or what?

  25. Like the other person said, "Let the poor guy sleep"

    You don't have to try so hard. Don't you want moments for yourselves? You don't have to share every little word he says.

  27. Just started following your blog and was literally crying I was laughing so hard at this. I used to say the most random stuff in my sleep too but thankfully I only got caught sleep talking a few times and no one recorded it. I love that you guys post these recordings. Definitely made my day!
