Uh oh - he does it too!


Mason, pictured here with the babies right after we found them, has inherited an unfortunate habit/trait of mine.

You see, I talk in my sleep. I don't always make much sense when I do - which is what he did last night.

Pookey and I were both awakened by Mason babbling at 2AM. It took me a second to realize what was going on. He appeared to be speaking backwards - he reminded me of the midget from Twin Peaks. I kind of remember telling Pookey that when were were both kind of half awake, but I could just be thinking that I said that. This isn't the first time that Mason has done this, but it's the first time that I found it funny enough to blog about.

The first time that Pookey experienced my sleep-talking was when we were dating. I had fallen asleep at his house and he was waking up to get ready for work when I rolled over to him and said, "YOU ARE NOT A COLANDER" and went back to sleep.

Most recently, I've started playing game shows in my sleep.

Yes, you read that correctly, game shows.

I woke Pookey up one night while I was playing Supermarket Sweep. He said I was reaching over him to his side of the bed looking for peanut butter. "Where's the peanut butter? I CAN'T FIND THE PEANUT BUTTER!!!"

Family Feud is another one that I'm good at in my sleep. "Name the top 5 phrases with the word 'love' in them." I had heard that on tv as I was falling asleep and as I dozed off and long after I had gone off to dreamland I was naming phrases.

There was another time that we were watching the Game Show Network as we were getting ready for bed (yes, that's a favorite here if you haven't caught on yet) and I was dozing off again. I remember this one a bit because I wasn't fully asleep. Pookey really likes this one - I think it cracks him up more than it does me. I asked him what the answer to the question was. He told me. Without missing a beat I asked, "What the heck was the question?"

I'm off to bed now myself, as I have to work in the morning and need my beauty sleep. ;-) What game show will I play tonight? I'm rooting for Jeopardy!
