Thank you so much, folks, for the lovely congratulatory comments on Friday! It really made my day."You know you're queen of the sunrise when you've got a she-monkey in your belly. That's you, queen of the sunrise."
Here's another one from a few weeks ago. By way of explanation, from the beginning, we've been referring to the baby as "the monkey," mostly because I'm a crazy animal-lover, and the thought of having a little monkey was easier to get my head around than a human baby. This unusually sweet quote (perhaps a first for STM?) came out shortly after we got the news that we are to have a girl:
|KAREN:||You said, “You know you’re queen of the sunrise when you’ve got a she-monkey in your belly.”|
|ADAM:||Hello, Your Majesty. Even STM wants to make you feel good, occasionally. Well, actually, this will be the first time.|
There's been a bit of a change in our lives that has been influential on Adam's sleep talking of late. I've been saving all of those quotes until I could give them some proper context and I've decided that, for no particular reason at all, today's the day! So, here it is:"I'll tell you what to expect when you're expecting... AHH! (yells himself awake)"
I've got a little somebody cooking in my belly! That's right, Sleep Talkin' Man will soon have an ally to help him keep me up through the night.
There's lots of excitement around the premises, of course, and mixed in we've got the expected small dose of apprehension. And that's where STM comes in...

"Ooh! Straight-jackets online! Christmas sorted."

|ADAM:||Grommets are things you get in your ears, aren't they? What are grommets? I'm thinking of a little furry thing, I don't know what a grommet is.|
|KAREN:||Okay, grommets are not furry by nature.|
|KAREN:||Grommets are usually metal things that you put into material. The sashes for the curtains.|
|KAREN:||The metal hole-things I made. That's a grommet.|
|ADAM:||Oh! A grommet for me is a fluffy, like—|
|KAREN:||Well, 'cause, the word is really cute.|
|ADAM:||Kind of fluffy big googly-eyed little round thing that goes (sound effect of funny little creature) and wobbles on the ground.|
|KAREN:||Well, the fact that that's what you thought a grommet is does explain why STM thinks that's what a grommet is. So, you knew the word "grommet" before.|
|ADAM:||I have heard of the word "grommet."|
|KAREN:||But you thought it was a cute furry creature with googly eyes.|
|ADAM:||Don't laugh at me.|
|KAREN:||Where did that idea come from? In what context have you heard the word "grommet?"|
|ADAM:||I know I have heard the word "grommet" in relation to children's ears. They have had operations to remove grommets.|
|KAREN:||What?!?!? Okay, I'm gonna look that up, and why would THAT be a cute furry thing with googly eyes?!|
|ADAM:||I don't know!!|
|KAREN:||That's really disturbing!|
|ADAM:||I don't know anything.|
|KAREN:||"You have a grommet growing out of your ear! We’re going to get that little critter out of there." Hold on. I'm going to put in "grommet" and "ear." Oh, yep, yep, hey! Uh… (reading) Ohhhh! A grommet is also—You know the tubes that they implant surgically in people's ears…|
|ADAM:||No?! I thought it was something that grew in there. That they had to remove. I don't know. Either way, it's not a cute furry animal, is it.|
|KAREN:||But here's what's frightening me: you knew there was an association with ear surgery on children, and yet you still thought it was a furry little critter with googly eyes.|
|ADAM:||Hang on, hang on, hang on. No, no, no. I am aware of the word "grommet" in association with children's ears and something wrong with them. I IMAGINE, if someone said to me a grommet is a creature, what that grommet would look like.|
|ADAM:||I didn't— Yes. Yes. Get it right.|
Wednesday Rewind"Everybody wriggle. Everybody wriggle. It's maggot mayhem."

This quote has actually become far more relevant than it was when STM muttered it almost three years ago. These days, Adam is an avid fisherman, and we frequently have boxes of wriggling little maggots around the house. He's even found an online shop that ships them to you. That package did NOT go down well at work.
