Don't Say Words That Have Never Met You

It's 3am at the Nall house.

Thomas: "Hey honey, I'm so sorry to wake you up. Can I have my blanket?"

Tracie: *Grumble* "...but I'm so warm and cuddly." *Grumble grumble*

Thomas: "And can I have at least half of the bed?"

Tracie rolls over. *GRUMBLE*

Thomas: "I think it's time we bought a new blanket, and got you some new pillows."

Tracie: *Grumble grumble* "...mossy rocks."

Thomas: "What? You want to sleep on mossy rocks?"

Tracie: "Don't say words that have never met you."

Thomas (perplexed): "Yeah...okay...we could sleep on mossy rocks, because they would be softer than regular rocks?"

*********

This is why you shouldn't try to talk to me at 3am when I am already asleep. Or maybe you should. Mossy Rock Beds might be the new big thing in sleep therapy. Probably not. But a girl can always dream.....as long as her husband doesn't wake her up.

  2. Bwahahahaha. My husband *claims* that I can have entire conversations when I'm asleep. I am totally working in "Don't say words that have never met you" into a conversation soon. It sounds really deep! (like deep sleep levels of deep! :D) --Lisa

    1. Definitely deep sleep levels of deep.

      It has become our new family catchphrase since that night. It just works for so many things on so many levels.

  3. Too funny. My husband has all sorts of conversations that don't make sense and that he doesn't remember in the morning when he is half asleep!

    1. That is funny.

      When I was a teenager, my parents would wake me up early in the morning and talk to me, and although I responded in fully formed sentences, I never remembered those conversations.

  4. I'm laughing because these same conversations (and add Scarlet coming to our bed and kicking my back all morning) kept happening in my house until we recently bought a king-sized bed.
    We really needed one.

    1. King-sized beds are wonderful. We used to have one, and I loved it. The next time we buy a bed, it will definitely be King-sized. Especially since Thomas is over 6 feet tall - we need that extra space!

  6. My husband sleeps like a rock. He barely notices when JDaniel comes to tell us that he has gotten up in the middle of the night.

    1. How is it that husbands are so rarely woken up by middle of the night children? It must be some genetic thing.

  7. Which is why we have a king sized bed, young kids climbing in bed with us (many years ago) and leg room- plenty of leg room, unless the hubs is cold and then he crowds me, until hot flashes kick in and I wake him to move over!!! Everyone has their sleep stories. Mossy beds do sound sort of inviting.

    1. A mossy bed...under the stars....on a cool, breezy night.....

      I could definitely see that being very nice.
