boys say the darndest things

This may be only funny to me, but I thought I'd share.

Jay is a notorious sleep talker. Sometimes he just mumbles, but sometimes he forms coherent (or semi-coherent, anyway) sentences. When we were in Florida last year, he woke me up by saying "Slap that bitch on the ho." I said excuse me? and then he said. "What can I do for you?" like he was some sort of snotty hotel concierge being polite, but still somehow being a jerk. In his sleep.

Then the other night, he woke me up with this conversation:

Jay: There's aspirin on the wall.
me: What?
Jay: Aspirin.
me: Aspirin?
Jay: Painkillers!
me: I don't know what you're talking about.
Jay: There are 7 or 8 aspirin on the wall! (frustrated, gets up)
me: Don't start a discussion with me until you can make sense! (I go back to sleep.)

I honestly had no idea what he was talking about because I was dead asleep when he suddenly starts talking about aspirin. I clarified that he was indeed talking about aspirin, but it didn't help me understand. Then he was mad at me for having no clue. Of course he had no recollection of this until the next morning when he remembered going to the bathroom in the middle night. He wasn't going to bring it up in case I forgot, but I did not forget. And I won't let him forget either.

ps - I realized I've stopped commenting on blogs, even though I am reading them. I'll try to fix that.

both of those are hilarious.
about a month ago, because s comes to bed so late & he's on the computer in the same room, i was half awake & said something that made complete sense to me, but was completely incoherent. he made fun of me the next morning mercilessly.

I have a good, old, dead friend who used to talk in his sleep. Some os his greatest hits included "Try a fraction!" and "Of course bears and gophers can be friends. They're both mammals. They both live in the forest."

I love sleep talking.
Count, that mammals statement makes perfect logical sense.
