My husband went in to check on my daughter the other night before going to bed. This is how we found her. She was in a very deep sleep. I ran downstairs to get the camera and a quick picture before we flipped her around.
It seems that amusing sleep stories run in the family. I talk in my sleep and walk in my sleep. My sleep stories seem to come up fairly often at parties and have proven to be very amusing. There are so many...it is hard to pick my favorites.
Here are some of the good ones:
1. Once in high school my mom woke up to a commotion in my room. She found me trying to stuff myself in my dresser drawer. I had pulled the drawer out, emptied it, and was trying to fit inside. She somehow managed to get me back to bed and I didn't remember it in the morning.
2. When I was pregnant with MissyMiss I (partly) woke up one night and was certain there was someone in my closet. Hubby was working nights at the time, so I was home alone. I quickly grabbed the phone and called 911. When the operator answered and started asking me questions I woke up all the way and discovered that my "intruder" was my shirt and pants. The man was very sweet and still offered to send someone out to check on me. I was unbelievably embarrassed. I am convinced that the 911 people have a copy of that tape and play it when they are in the mood for a chuckle.
3. In grad school, I lived in an apartment building with hubby in a less than desirable part of town. The building was a mix of students and scary people. One night I (partly) woke up and was certain someone was in the room. I ran out as fast as I could (leaving my sleeping hubby behind). I woke up when the apartment door slammed behind me and I was stuck out in the hallway in my pjs at 2:30 in the morning.
Any other sleep walkers out there? Can anyone top these stories?
