Things That Go 'Duh' In The Night

I'm halfway into my second cup of coffee and am just now waking up. And by 'cup' I mean 24 ounce bucket. I've just learned from my wife that I have a reason for being tired (although she has a better one). Apparently we were having a nice discussion around 2 AM that I can't, for the life of me, recall.

Me: Could you not sleep last night or something?
Her: Nope.
Me: I noticed your book was in the office this morning and figured that's what happened. Why?
Her: Just wide awake. You talked to me for a while.
Me: Really? Was I witty and amusing?
Her: Of course.
Me: Was this before I fell asleep or had I already been asleep for a while?
Her: It was about 2 AM.
Me: Damn! I so don't rememeber that. What did we talk about?
Her: Me being awake.
Me: So we didn't solve any of the great issues of our time?
Her: Not that I recall.
Me: Good. I'd hate to have forgotten that.

That is too funny. My brother talks in his sleep and doesn't remember it either.

Those are always fun conversations, aren't they? :)

Heh. Apparently I am always having conversations, with either the mister or myself, in the wee hours of the morning.

There's more to this, isn't there?

I do that often (hold conversations in my sleep), but I always feel rested in the morning.

I do this with my hubby in the morning too. I hate it cause sometimes he won't tell me what I said to him. He'll just giggle and walk away.

Yep. I do that. A lot actually. How does that happen?

I have a tendency to kick E relentlessly while I sleep, so sometimes I wake up and he's on the couch, with a book! I suppose I can't really feel guilty if I don't remember it, right??

LMAO :))

"... she has a better one" it makes me wonder.. ...does yesterday's post have something to do with that?

i can always count on you for a good laugh :) although, the other night dave said that he was talking to me when he came to bed around 2 or 3 and i don't remember that, either. hmm.

and i love when you post your little snippets of conversations on here...they're always so amusing.

Jason told me I woke up around 3 am last night to yell at the cat for making a racket. Except that the cat was sound asleep at the edge of the bed and very confused as to why he was getting yelled at.

I have had my boyfriend CALL me after I fall asleep - I'll pick up the phone and have an entire conversation with him, and not remember any of it the next day.

I'm good like that.

As a kid and well into my 20's I recall (or not!) friends accusing me of being abnormally spacey...even for me when they would try and recount late night phone conversations with me. Apparently they would call and chat with me in the wee hours of the night and I would be totally asleep, but able to have a conversation. To overcome this I would place the phone on the floor after I talked to someone so in the morning I would see the phone down there and remember that I had taken a call. The scary thing was that I rarely remembered who called and what I said. This got me into trouble on a few occasions and was always a source of amusement for my friends...
" hey!It's 2:30 am so let's call T and make her say strange shit she won't remember tomorrow"

That's funny. My hubby never talks in his sleep, but he was holding forth an entire unintelligible monologue last night. Still don't know what he was dreaming/talking about since he gets up for work at 3:15 a.m. He won't be home for another 1/2 hour.
